Aircraft Design

Aircraft Types and Missions

Apply Statistics to Engineering

Estimating Aircraft Masses

Design and Positioning of Vehicle Components

Solving Aircraft Balancing Characteristics

Description

The Aircraft Design course focuses on teaching you the key skills needed to build fully operational aircraft from scratch. Here I will provide you with a complete workbook which describes every small detail for designing a vehicle from statistical analysis to final estimation of balancing characteristics of the aircraft.

You will start by learning the basics of Aerospace engineering by focusing on Aircraft classes and the main physics describing the forces applied to any flying vehicle. Then you will be introduces to your aircraft design project which is a business jet that you will learn how to build throughout the course. You will be solving the following project:

Design a civil transport aircraft for business needs. The type of the aircraft is airplane also called Business Jet. The airplane shall be allowed increased cabin space for its passengers. The only class available shall be business class standard.

The aircraft should meet the following requirements:

  • Be able to transport at least 12 passengers excluding the cabin crew.

  • Hs maximum wing span of 20 meters.

  • Be transonic aircraft to meet the noise standards. Its cruise speed should not exceed 980 km/h.

  • Maximum flight level should not exceed F500 or 15000 meters.

  • The aircraft shall allow overflying a range of at least 3000 kilometers with a single fuel tank.

  • The engines shall allow take-off distance of no more than 2000 meters.

The overall course content was good and informative..but it could have been more interesting and interactive and could've been a little less statistical based..only numbers and figures were mainly projected and worked upon but theoritical and practical sense/knowledge in the calculations was lacking.

It turned out to be pretty basic aircraft design as I was hoping for something more deep and technical. This course just scratches the surface of aircraft design. There are also a lot of typos in the presentations and the notes. The whole thing looks like it was written in a hurry and never reviewed.

Since it is the only course of its kind. I Am giving it a 3.5. The problem is a lot of the calculations and parameters are just assumed and no explanation is given for it. Which makes it an math exercise of plugging in numbers into a formula. If you want to truly make it an aircraft design course you need to explain the story behind those numbers and parameters that you have just chosen because its the standard...
