Description:

From an engineer with fifteen years of design experience, General Aviation Aircraft Design: Applied Methods and Procedures is a practical handbook that serves as the first source for answers to practical aircraft design questions.  The book is organized by articles and structured in an "equation/derivation/solved example" format for easy access to content. Readers will find it a valuable guide to practical topics such as sizing of horizontal and vertical tails to minimize drag, sizing of lifting surfaces to ensure proper dynamic stability, numerical performance methods, and common faults and fixes in aircraft design. In most cases, numerical examples involve actual aircraft specs. Organized by articles and structured in an 'equation/derivation/solved example' format for easy access to the content you need without having to read through lengthy derivations.  In most cases the numerical examples involve actual aircraft specs.  Contains high-interest topics not found in other texts, making it a complete source for preliminary aircraft design.  Examples include:  sizing of horizontal and vertical tails to minimize drag, sizing of lifting surfaces to ensure proper dynamic stability, numerical performance methods, and common faults and fixes in aircraft design Provides a unique safety-oriented design checklist based on real industry experience Discusses advantages and disadvantages of using computational tools during the design process Features detailed summaries of design options that help the designer understand the pros and cons of a particular aerodynamic solution Includes three case studies showing applications to business jets, general aviation aircraft, and UAV's.
