The most exciting moment for an aeronautical engineer is when his or her design becomes a working aircraft, the endpoint of a journey that begins in the classroom. Introduction to Aeronautics: A Design Perspective shows students the methods and thought processes involved in designing aircraft. They learn by using specific analytical principles, practical examples, and case studies, with corresponding problems to solve. At the U.S. Air Force Academy, Chapters 1-6 are taught to the entire student body in a three-semester-hour course. Chapters 7-10 are taught to aeronautical engineering majors. New or Revised Material Includes: * *Designing for stealth * *Shaping for supersonic cruise * *Boundary-layer equations * *Maximum trimmable lift coefficient * *Drag curves * *Kinetic theory of gases * *High angle-of-attack aerodynamics * *Analysis and sizing of electric and solar-powered aircraft * *Flight test * *Aircraft cost estimation * *Aircraft mechanisms and kinematics * *New examples and homework problems The material in this textbook and the AeroDYNAMIC software, available for separate purchase, are sufficient to support a university-level course of three to six semester hours. AeroDYNAMIC provides a single integrated package with one universal user interface that allows access to virtual laboratories, simulations, and design synthesis and analysis software based on the methods presented in the text.
