Short Course
Young engineers in all branches of aeronautics and more senior engineers who are specialist in other but related disciplines.
Cranfield University, College Road, Cranfield, MK43 0AL, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

Content summary

Formal lectures will cover the following topics:

  • The design process
  • Aircraft performance evaluation
  • Drag and mass prediction
  • Structural layout
  • Wing, fuselage and landing gear layout
  • Basic aircraft stability and the sizing of stabilising surfaces
  • Powerplant considerations
  • Airframe Systems

Each participant will have the opportunity to be involved in the design of a jet aircraft to help illustrate the material delivered in the lecture element of the course. The programme will allow time to work on this exercise and review the results.

The aim of the course is threefold

  • To provide an understanding of the fundamental analytical procedures which are needed for conceptual design.
  • To demonstrate how computational techniques can be used to assist in the synthesis and analysis processes.
  • To provide sufficient basic data to enable a case study of subsonic aircraft design to be undertaken.
Who should attend

It will be assumed that the participants on the course will have a basic knowledge of aeronautical terminology and aircraft technology. Some experience in the use of desk top computers will be of value. The course has been planned to be of relevance to young engineers in all branches of aeronautics and more senior engineers who are specialist in other but related disciplines.

Some participants will be registered on a part time MSc course. For these students this short course will count towards the award of that degree. (Participants interested in exploring the opportunity to gain a higher degree on a part time basis should contact the course director for further information and eligibility criteria)

A comprehensive set of course notes will be provided and access to the Library will be available.
