Download or read book entitled General Aviation Aircraft Design by author: Snorri Gudmundsson which was release on 15 September 2021 and published by Butterworth-Heinemann with total page 1200 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. It is imperative that the mission of a new aircraft is very clearly defined. Is it primarily intended to serve as a cruiser? If so, what airspeed and cruising altitude is it most likely to see during its operation? Is it a cargo transport aircraft? How much weight must it carry? How fast, far, and high shall it fly? General Aviation Aircraft Design: Applied Methods and Procedures, Second Edition continues to be the engineers' best source for answers to realistic aircraft design questions. The book provides design guidance for additional general aviation aircraft such as seaplanes, canards, UAV, and supersonic business aircraft. It also provides important tools and examples for aircraft sizing and design for good handling characteristics, and includes new chapters on: Thrust Modeling for Turbojet and Turbofan Engines Longitudinal Stability and Control Lateral Stability and Control Directional Stability and Control Dynamic Stability and Control Written by an engineer with over 20 years of design experience, professional engineers, aircraft designers, aerodynamicists, structural analysts, performance analysts, researchers, and advanced aerospace engineering students will value this book as the classic go-to for aircraft design. NEW: The printed book is in color! NEW: Design formulation for electric aircraft! More material, that includes three new chapters and two appendices Every chapter has been revised for more concise presentation 1011 Figures, illustrations, and graphs. Multiple new illustrations. Previous illustrations revised Discusses the most frequently used methods in conceptual aircraft design Covers various handling and stability topics such as roll, yaw, pitch competing control authority especially at low speeds, and the effects of uncommanded thrust/pitch reversal on control Features updated material to all the chapters including new sections to chapter 4 (Aircraft Conceptual Layout) and chapter 7 (Selecting the Power Plant), the addition of chapters on stability and control directed squarely at GA aircraft design and sizing, as well as regulations updated to "new" 14 CFR Part 23 Uses real-world examples and actual aircraft designs such as the Cirrus SR-22, solved examples, and derivations
