    Aircraft Fuel Systems integrates all aspects of fuel products and systems including fuel handling, fuel quantity gauging and fuel management for both commerical/civil, and military aircraft applications. It collates together information on fuel system design that is currently disseminated throughout literature into one easily comprehensible reference text. There are chapters on basic system functions, features and functions unique to military aircraft, fuel handling, fuel quantity gauging, fuel management, fuel system safety and fuel systems design and development. Contributions come from industry specialists. Comprehensive introduction to aircraft fuel system design Offers an all-encompassing view of aircraft fuel systems that is non-existent in current literature Includes specific fuel system design examples that illustrate the applications presented throughout. Provides a clear path through the various sub systems found on modem aircraft Part of the prestigious Wiley Aerospace series
