Aircraft design projects : for engineering students by Lloyd R. Jenkinson

By Lloyd R. Jenkinson

Written with scholars of aerospace or aeronautical engineering firmly in brain, it is a sensible and wide-ranging ebook that attracts jointly many of the theoretical components of plane layout - constructions, aerodynamics, propulsion, keep an eye on and others - and courses the reader in employing them in perform. according to various certain real-life plane layout tasks, together with army education, advertisement and notion airplane, the skilled united kingdom and US dependent authors current engineering scholars with a necessary toolkit and connection with help their very own venture work.

All airplane initiatives are precise and it's very unlikely to supply a template for the paintings fascinated about the layout technique. notwithstanding, with the information of the stairs within the preliminary layout method and of prior event from comparable tasks, scholars might be freer to be aware of the cutting edge and analytical points in their path venture.

The authors deliver a special mixture of views and adventure to this article. It displays either British and American educational practices in educating plane layout. Lloyd Jenkinson has taught airplane layout at either Loughborough and Southampton universities within the united kingdom and Jim Marchman has taught either airplane and spacecraft layout at Virginia Tech within the US.

* Demonstrates how simple airplane layout procedures should be effectively utilized in reality
* Case experiences enable either scholar and teacher to ascertain specific layout demanding situations
* Covers advertisement and profitable scholar layout initiatives, and comprises over 2 hundred top of the range illustrations

Sample text

Although the new design will be different from previous aircraft, such inconsistencies can be ignored at this stage. Use representative values from one or a small group of the specimen aircraft for wing loading, thrust loading and aircraft take-off weight. It is also possible to use a representative wing shape and associated tail sizes. The design method that follows is an iterative process that usually converges on a feasible configuration quickly. The initial general arrangement drawing, produced to match existing aircraft parameters, provides the starting point for this process.

G. fuel management systems) may have to be introduced. The locations of the landing gear units is directly related to the aircraft centre of gravity, therefore repositioning of these units may also be considered at this time. “chap02” — 2003/3/10 — page 31 — #26 31 32 Aircraft Design Projects Detailed assessment of the ‘packaging’ of the aircraft is another task that can be considered at this point in the design process. An analysis of the space required and available for all components and systems must be made.

These lines represent boundaries between the unacceptable and feasible regions of the design space. It is usual to attach hatching to the line on the unacceptable side of the constraint. In this way, the design space is divided into the two regions by each constraint. 6). Any combination of (T /W ) and (W /S) values is possible within this region. The selection of a particular pair of values will dictate the size and nature of the aircraft layout. For example, given a reasonable estimate of the aircraft maximum weight (take-off mass), the engine thrust will be fixed by the T /W value and the gross wing area fixed by the W /S value.
