AIRCRAFT AERODYNAMIC DESIGN WITH COMPUTATIONAL SOFTWARE
This modern text presents aerodynamic design of aircraft with realistic applications, using CFD software and guidance on its use. Tutorials, exercises, and mini-projects provided involve design of real aircraft, ranging from straight to swept to slender wings, from low speed to supersonic. Supported by online resources and supplements, this toolkit covers topics such as shape optimization to minimize drag and collaborative designing. Prepares seniors and first-year graduate students for design and analysis tasks in aerospace companies. In addition, it is a valuable resource for practicing engineers, aircraft designers, and entrepreneurial consultants.
