Reviews

'Therefore, this book is a very valuable one since it establishes some rules and procedures and gives a rich account of study cases also of interest for experienced designers... Finally it must be said, that it is difficult to encompass the full richness of this fascinating book. The reviewer enjoyed reading it.' Prof Korner, German Aerospace Center, DLR 'Written for students of aeronautical engineering, and based on a range of detailed aircraft design projects, this wide-ranging book draws together the elements of aircraft design and will support any aircraft design project. Written by experienced UK and US-based authors this is a unique resource that opens up the initial design process, explores the experience of others on similar projects, and clarifies the processes that are behind the equations and calculations used in aircraft design. Armed with this knowledge, readers will be freer to concentrate on the innovative and analytical aspects of their own project work.' Aerospace America, October, 2004
