Aircraft Design Projects: for engineering students

File Size: 2.44 Mb

There are many excellent texts covering aircraft design from a variety of perspectives.1 Some of these are aimed at specific audiences ranging from practising aerospace engineers, to engineering students, to amateur airplane builders. Others cover specialized aspects of the subject such as undercarriage or propulsion system design. Some of these are quite detailed in their presentation of the design process while others are very general in scope. Some are overviews of all the basic aeronautical engineering subjects that come together in the creation of a design.

University faculty that teach aircraft design courses often face difficult choices when evaluating texts or references for their students’ use. Many texts that are suitable for use in a design class are biased toward particular classes of aircraft such as military aircraft, general aviation, or airliners. A text that gives excellent coverage of design basics may prove slanted toward a class of aircraft different from that year’s project. Alternatively, those that emphasize the correct type of vehicle may treat design fundamentals in an unfamiliar manner. The situation may be further complicated in classes that have
several teams of students working on different types of designs, some of which ‘fit’ the chosen text while others do not.
