Civil Jet Aircraft Design

Share/Save/Bookmark Review
'It is refreshing to see the publication of a book which describes the many aspects of modern civil jet aircraft design. It is the value of the present book that it emphasises that design in general and aircraft design in particular encompasses much more than performing the required computations. Civil Jet Aircraft Design fully deserves its place among the relatively small number of modern books on aircraft design.' Aircraft Design 'The scope is comprehensive...the chapter sequence is logical...the figures are clear and simple and relate wll to the text...should be on the shelf of all aero engineering students.' The Aeronautical Journal, May 2000 "Written by experts in their fields...highly recommended." Air International. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Product Description
This book represents a comprehensive introduction to the modern process of designing transport aircraft from the preliminary stages of conceptual design to detail design of major aircraft components, including cost analysis and optimization. The three authors ensure a balanced presentation, with viewpoints from an educator, a practicing engineer/designer, and an official from the Civil Aviation Authority, U.K.

One of the main objectives of this text is to introduce students to the procedures and practices of civil aircraft design involving conflicting requirements of performance, quality, safety, and environmental issues. The first part of the text deals with the main elements of the preliminary design process for principal aircraft components of a civil transport, including the parametric methods used to define the baseline design configuration. The second part describes the use of spreadsheet methods in aircraft design on four separate design studies.

Co-published with Butterworth-Heinemann.
