Introduction to Aircraft Design



Certificate on completion

Optional, paid

This course is designed to provide students an understanding of procedure followed in conceptual design of an aircraft, meeting the user-specified design requirements and safety considerations specified by the aircraft certification agencies. The students will be exposed to types of aircraft and their features, requirements capture, configuration selection, initial sizing, determination of aerodynamic coefficients, constraint analysis, types of loads, V-n diagram, Range-Payload diagram, and Life Cycle Cost analysis. A special feature of this course will be a series of tutorials which will run all along the course to give the participants a practical feel of conceptual sizing and of an existing civil transport aircraft.
