Introduction to Aircraft Design

Indian Institute of Technology Bombay and NPTEL via Swayam

Overview

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.

INTENDED AUDIENCE :
Aeronautical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Automobile Engineering
PREREQUISITES :Introduction to Aerospace Engineering, Flight Mechanics
INDUSTRIES SUPPORT :HAL, NAL, Mahindra Aerospace, ADE, ADA, Airbus, Boeing
