Students in Aircraft Design 2 will be introduced to the design of aircraft structures and integration of aircraft systems into an aircraft. The course first develops an understanding and application of aircraft loading actions and the construction of the V-n diagram. The course will then cover the methods of sizing typical aircraft structures. Details of military and civilian aircraft airworthiness and certification requirements, and the associated legal issues in aircraft design, with particular emphasis to structural requirements, are presented by specialist guest lecturers. Basic principles and practices of aircraft systems design and integration will follow. Students will develop their skills in this phase of aircraft design with project work.
