Fundamentals of Aircraft and Airship Design, Volume 1: Aircraft Design emphasizes that the science and art of the aircraft design process is a compromise and that there is no right answer; however, there is always a best answer based on existing requirements and available technologies. This book is a revision and expansion of the classic that has been used worldwide for more than thirty years. Completely updated with the latest industry processes and techniques, it will benefit graduate and upper-level undergraduate students as well as practicing engineers. Step-by-step examples are featured throughout the book, including designing a wing and lessons captured from historical case studies of aircraft design. The authors address the conceptual design phase comprehensively for both civil and military aircraft, from initial consideration of user needs, materials selection, and structural arrangement, to the decision to iterate the design one more time. The book addresses designing for survivability stealth , solar and human power aircraft systems, and very high altitude operation with air breathing propulsion.

Fundamentals of Aircraft and Airship Design, Volume I - Aircraft Design Details The aircraft is only a transport mechanism for the payload, and all design decisions must consider payload first. Simply stated, the aircraft is a dust cover.
This book emphasizes that the aircraft design process is a science and an art, but also a compromise. The authors address the conceptual design phase comprehensively, for both civil and military aircraft, from initial consideration of user needs, material selection, and structural arrangement to the decision to iterate the design one more time.
The book includes designing for survivability stealth , solar- and human-powered aircraft systems, and very high altitude operation with air breathing propulsion. This book revises and expands the classic aircraft design textbook that has been used worldwide for more than 30 years. Completely updated with the latest industry processes and techniques, it will benefit graduate and upper-level undergraduate students as well as practicing engineers.
Special features include step-by-step examples throughout the book, including designing a wing, lessons captured from historical case studies of aircraft design, and full-color photographs of multiple aircraft.
