Civil Jet Aircraft Design

As with all engineering, there is an increasing emphasis on design issues in aeronautical engineering. "Civil Jet Aircraft Design" is the definitive textbook on this core subject. Written by experts in their field, this book provides a general introduction to aircraft design, while also exploring the underlying procedures and practices in depth. Concentrating on large scale commercial jet aircraft, the book reflects current areas of growth in the aircraft industry. Readers are introduced to the procedures and practices of civil aircraft design at a level suitable for undergraduate students of aeronautical design, and for professionals in industry. The contents of this book represent the personal opinion of the authors and do not necessarily reflect that of CAA/NATS. It covers all aspects of aircraft design and includes chapters on the design process; engine and structure design; aircraft performances; safety and environmental implications; and parametric studies. It contains four detailed case studies, and introduces the reader to spreadsheet methods in the analysis of aircraft.

'It is refreshing to see the publication of a book which describes the many aspects of modern civil jet aircraft design. It is the value of the present book that it emphasises that design in general and aircraft design in particular encompasses much more than performing the required computations. Civil Jet Aircraft Design fully deserves its place among the relatively small number of modern books on aircraft design.' Aircraft Design 'The scope is comprehensive.......the chapter sequence is logical...the figures are clear and simple and relate wll to the text....should be on the shelf of all aero engineering students.' The Aeronautical Journal, May 2000 "Written by experts in their fields...highly recommended." Air International.
