    Although the overall appearance of modern airliners has not changed a lot since the introduction of jetliners in the 1950s, their safety, efficiency and environmental friendliness have improved considerably. Main contributors to this have been gas turbine engine technology, advanced materials, computational aerodynamics, advanced structural analysis and on-board systems. Since aircraft design became a highly multidisciplinary activity, the development of multidisciplinary optimization (MDO) has become a popular new discipline. Despite this, the application of MDO during the conceptual design phase is not yet widespread. Advanced Aircraft Design: Conceptual Design, Analysis and Optimization of Subsonic Civil Airplanes presents a quasi-analytical optimization approach based on a concise set of sizing equations. Objectives are aerodynamic efficiency, mission fuel, empty weight and maximum takeoff weight. Independent design variables studied include design cruise altitude, wing area and span and thrust or power loading. Principal features of integrated concepts such as the blended wing and body and highly non-planar wings are also covered. The quasi-analytical approach enables designers to compare the results of high-fidelity MDO optimization with lower-fidelity methods which need far less computational effort. Another advantage to this approach is that it can provide answers to "what if" questions rapidly and with little computational cost. Key features: Presents a new fundamental vision on conceptual airplane design optimization Provides an overview of advanced technologies for propulsion and reducing aerodynamic drag Offers insight into the derivation of design sensitivity information Emphasizes design based on first principles Considers pros and cons of innovative configurations Reconsiders optimum cruise performance at transonic Mach numbers Advanced Aircraft Design: Conceptual Design, Analysis and Optimization of Subsonic Civil Airplanes advances understanding of the initial optimization of civil airplanes and is a must-have reference for aerospace engineering students, applied researchers, aircraft design engineers and analysts.

     Weltraumantriebe sind der Schlüssel zur Raumfahrt! Sie bestimmen die Reisezeit zu fernen Planeten und sind natürlich ein wesentlicher Kostentreiber für jede Weltraummission. Dieses Buch zeigt den letzten Entwicklungsstand einer Vielzahl von Antriebssystemen, von klassischer Raketentechnologie, nuklearen Antrieben - welche hauptsächlich in den 60er und 70er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts entwickelt wurden - zu elektrischen Antrieben und weiter zu Mikro- und futuristischen Antriebssystemen, an denen bei der NASA und in der ganzen Welt geforscht wird. Dabei werden bei jedem System nicht nur die technischen Grenzen, sondern auch die Richtung in die sich ein Antrieb in Zukunft entwickeln kann diskutiert. Der Leser begibt sich auf eine spannende Reise, von historischen Konzepten bis hin zu bahnbrechenden Technologien, welche teilweise schon jahrzehntelang entwickelt wurden aber erst jetzt eingesetzt werden und eine wesentliche Rolle in der Zukunft der Raumfahrt spielen sollen. Am Ende werden sogar Ideen präsentiert, wie die zukünftige Wissenschaft Probleme wie die Reise zu anderen Sternen meistern könnte. Der Autor ist aktiv in der Forschung an einer Reihe von modernen Weltraumantrieben involviert und kann so seine eigene Erfahrung zu vielen Themen einbringen. Dieses Buch ist für all jede geschrieben, die schon immer fasziniert waren von der Frage, wie die Weltraumfahrt revolutioniert werden kann.

    In this book recent results of the GARTEUR (Group for Aeronautical Research and Technology in Europe) Action Group FM (AG11) are presented. The book focuses on analysis techniques for the flight clearance of highly augmented aircrafts, including contributions of 20 European aeronautical organisations such as National Research Centers, Aerospace Industries and Universities. The tasks and requirements of the Industrial Clearance Process for Flight Control Laws are presented as well as classical and particularly new analysis methods. The different methods are evaluated and compared and their potential application to Civil Aircraft is demonstrated.
  • Advances In Collaborative Civil Aeronautical Multidisciplinary Design Optimization

    The results of a recent industry-led European research project on the virtual collaborative civil aeronautical enterprise serve as a case study to further elucidate multidisciplinary design optimization. The studies follow the phases of a generic design cycle as closely as possible, moving from issues at initial design stages to more detailed design optimizations; a secondary arrangement moves from product complexity to simplicity: whole aircraft through engines to single components. They do not follow a single design or product through the process, and their examples are from the real world. Among the topics are choosing between design-to-mass or design-to-cost as a helicopter predesign strategy, fuselage structure optimization, using the virtual-enterprise-collaboration hub for distributed engine optimization and securing virtual-enterprise collaboration.
