Aircraft design projects : for engineering students by Lloyd R. Jenkinson custom power point presentation By Lloyd R. Jenkinson

Written with scholars of aerospace or aeronautical engineering firmly in brain, this can be a sensible and wide-ranging booklet that attracts jointly a number of the theoretical parts of plane layout - buildings, aerodynamics, propulsion, keep watch over and others - and publications the reader in utilizing them in perform. in line with a number exact real-life plane layout initiatives, together with army education, advertisement and thought airplane, the skilled united kingdom and US established authors current engineering scholars with a necessary toolkit and connection with aid their very own undertaking work.

All airplane initiatives are specified and it really is most unlikely to supply a template for the paintings keen on the layout strategy. besides the fact that, with the data of the stairs within the preliminary layout procedure and of prior event from related tasks, scholars might be freer to be aware of the cutting edge and analytical points in their direction venture.

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

* Demonstrates how uncomplicated airplane layout procedures might be effectively utilized in reality
* Case reports permit either scholar and teacher to ascertain specific layout demanding situations
* Covers advertisement and winning scholar layout initiatives, and contains over 2 hundred prime quality illustrations

Sample text

It is desirable that the selected point lies close to the minimum value of T /W to reduce engine size and close to the maximum value of W /S to reduce wing size. Often such a point lies on the intersection of the constraint lines. Although the constraint analysis will give guidance on the selection of the design point as described above, it is principally used to show the significance of the specified constraints to the aircraft configuration. For example, it may show that a constraint is too demanding (over-riding all other constraints) and significantly reduces the allowable design space.

3 shows how the data might be viewed. Alternatively, aircraft design textbooks often quote representative values for the ratio for various aircraft types. 47 Max. take-off mass (MTO) Fig. 3 Analysis of existing aircraft data (example) “chap02” — 2003/3/10 — page 17 — #12 17 18 Aircraft Design Projects a – take-off, b – climb, c – cruise, d – step climp, e – continued cruise, f – descent, g – diversion, h – hold, i – landing at alternate airstrip. c d e f g b h a i Fig. 4 Mission profile (civil aircraft example) (c) Fuel fraction For most aircraft the fuel fraction (MF /MTO ) can be crudely estimated from the modified Brequet range equation: MF 1 · (time) = (SFC) · (L/D) MTO where (SFC) = engine specific fuel consumption (kg/N/hr) (L/D) = aircraft lift to drag ratio (time) = hours at the above conditions The mission profile will have been specified in the project brief.

Since it will be necessary to recalculate the baseline aircraft with these new values, it is worth considering other changes that might be beneficial to the design. For example, the wing aspect ratio may have been selected from arbitrary data from other aircraft. It would be appropriate to assess this decision as more detailed analysis of the design is now available. Such methods are referred to as trade-off or sensitivity studies. They generally investigate the variation of a single parameter while keeping all others constant.
