Aircraft Conceptual Design Synthesis by Denis Howe

Aircraft Conceptual Design Synthesis means design byfitness–for–purpose. Design engineers can jump off from the pointof given parameters and requirements required performance,payloads and other factors.

This is the first book for the aeronautical designer devoted toguiding the reader through this highly effective conceptual designsynthesis process. This forms the procedure for the initial stageof the aircraft design process the interpretation of arequirement into the preliminary layout. A logical design sequenceis developed utilizing original modules to represent propulsion,lift, drag, mass, and performance. Aircraft Conceptual DesignSynthesis includes a disk of spreadsheets that provides coredata. Unlike existing approaches, the design synthesis method canbe applied to novel aircraft concepts.

CONTENTS INCLUDE

  • The design process
  • Aircraft configuration
  • Flight regime and powerplant considerations
  • Fuselage layout
  • Configuration of the wing
  • Basic lift, drag and mass representations
  • Performance estimation
  • Parametric analysis and optimisation
  • Analysis of concept design
