Aircraft Design: A Systems Engineering Approach by Mohammad H. Sadraey

By Mohammad H. Sadraey

A entire method of the air automobile layout procedure utilizing the rules of platforms engineering

Due to the excessive fee and the hazards linked to improvement, complicated plane structures became a first-rate candidate for the adoption of structures engineering methodologies. This e-book offers the full technique of airplane layout in response to a structures engineering process from conceptual layout part, via to initial layout part and to element layout phase.

Presenting in a single quantity the methodologies at the back of airplane layout, this publication covers the parts and the problems stricken by layout approaches. the fundamental issues which are necessary to the method, equivalent to aerodynamics, flight balance and control, aero-structure, and plane functionality are reviewed in a variety of chapters the place required.  in line with those basics and layout specifications, the writer explains the layout method in a holistic demeanour to stress the combination of the person parts into the general layout. during the ebook a few of the layout thoughts are thought of and weighed opposed to one another, to offer readers a pragmatic realizing of the method overall. 

Readers with wisdom of the elemental techniques of aerodynamics, propulsion, aero-structure, and flight dynamics will locate this e-book excellent to development in the direction of the following level of their knowing of the subject. moreover, the huge number of layout options lined guarantees that readers have the liberty and adaptability to meet the layout requisites while impending real-world projects.

Key features:

•         Provides complete insurance of the layout elements of an air motor vehicle together with: aeronautical options, layout ideas and layout flowcharts

•         positive factors finish of bankruptcy difficulties to augment the educational strategy in addition to absolutely solved layout examples at part level

•          comprises primary factors for aeronautical engineering scholars and training engineers

•          contains a strategies handbook to pattern questions about the book’s spouse website

11 Two aircraft in tragic accidents: (a) Tupolev Tu-154 crashed due to poor weather conditions; (b) An Ilyushin Il-76 freighter which caught fire on the ground. Reproduced from permission of (a) Augusto G. Gomez; (b) Serghei Podlesnii Part (a) reproduced from permission of Augusto G. Gomez which caught fire on the ground while it was being loaded in preparation for a flight to Brazzaville, Congo on May 10, 2007. The threat of liability law suits must spur on designers and manufacturers to be more sensitive to safety issues and to address them in more creative and innovative ways.

Thus, the only way to reach the solution is to choose from a list of design options. There are frequently many circumstances in which there are multiple solutions for a design problem but one option does not clearly dominate the others in all areas of comparison. A simple example is a transportation design problem where a designer is required to design a vehicle to transfer one person from one city to another. It is assumed that the two cities are both seaports and located at a distance of 300 km.

In case there are uncertainties in evaluating criteria, a sophisticated robust decision rule should attempt to incorporate the uncertainties into the decision-making process. One of the difficulties of dealing with uncertainties is coming up with the probabilities of the uncertain parameters and factors. 5 Feasibility Analysis In the early stages of design and by employing brainstorming, a few promising concepts are suggested which seem consistent with the scheduling and available resources. Prior to committing resources and personnel to the detail design phase, an important design activity – feasibility analysis – must be performed.
