Aircraft Design (Cambridge Aerospace) by Ajoy Kundu

By Ajoy Kundu

Plane layout explores mounted winged airplane layout on the conceptual section of a undertaking. Designing an plane is a fancy multifaceted approach embracing many technical demanding situations in a multidisciplinary setting. via definition, the subject calls for clever use of aerodynamic wisdom to configure plane geometry perfect particularly to the customer's calls for. It comprises estimating plane weight and drag and computing the to be had thrust from the engine. The technique proven right here contains formal sizing of the airplane, engine matching, and substantiating functionality to conform with the customer's calls for and govt regulatory criteria. linked issues comprise issues of safety, environmental concerns, fabric selection, structural format, realizing flight deck, avionics, and structures (for either civilian and armed forces aircraft). expense estimation and production concerns also are mentioned. The chapters are prepared to optimize knowing of business ways to plane layout technique. instance routines from the author's commercial event facing a standard airplane layout are incorporated.

Example text

Innumerable Web sites on these topics exist; simply enter keywords such as Airbus, Boeing, or anything that piques your curiosity. The desire to become airborne is ancient and it is reflected in our imagination and dreams. In the West, Daedalus and Icarus of Greek mythology were the first aviators; in the East, there are even more ancient myths – with no crashes. In Indian mythology, Pakshiraj is a white stallion with wings; the Greeks had a flying horse called Pegasus; and the Swedes also have flying horses.

Crucial aerofoil aerodynamics information is provided in Chapter 3 and characteristics are found in Appendix C. Chapter 3 does not provide sequential coursework to start with, but students are required to know the facts and to refer to and apply them when required. Following the history of achievements are the statistics, covered in Chapter 4. As mentioned previously, products from different origins show similarities that indicate a strong statistical pattern that provides an idea of what is to be expected in a new design.

There are no exercises at the end of the chapters; each continues the project progression of students. Many categories of aircraft have been designed; this book covers a wide range for coursework exercises and provides adequate exposure to important categories. After students become proficient, they could then undertake less conventional aircraft designs. Associated examples in the book are the turbofan-powered Learjet 45 class of aircraft for civil applications and a turbofan-powered military, advanced jet trainer aircraft of the Royal Air Force (RAF) Hawk class.
