 About the Book 

This highly regarded textbook presents the entire process of aircraft conceptual design--from requirements definition to initial sizing, configuration layout, analysis, sizing, and trade studies--in the same manner seen in industry aircraft designMoreThis highly regarded textbook presents the entire process of aircraft conceptual design--from requirements definition to initial sizing, configuration layout, analysis, sizing, and trade studies--in the same manner seen in industry aircraft design groups. The book has more than 900 pages of design methods, illustrations, tips, explanations, and equations, and has extensive appendices with key data essential to design. With the third edition, Raymer has updated his book to reflect the latest advances in technologies such as hypersonics, stealth, and STOVL, and the newest design methods including concurrent engineering, cost as an independent variable, and the impact of the factory of the future. Expanded are treatments of such key areas as jet engine installation, CFD, trim analysis, CAD/CAM, propeller thrust analysis, weights estimation, cost analysis, and multivariable optimization. A step-by-step description of how a typical design is developed (with illustrations) is included, and also describes the technical concepts behind some unusual design approaches such as tailless, canard-pusher, no-lateral-symmetry (Rutan Boomerang), wing-in-ground effect, and the hypersonic waverider. Along with the addition of metric data and equations, more than 30 new illustrations and homework examples have been added.
