Aircraft Design. A Conceptual Approach by Daniel P. Raymer

By Daniel P. Raymer

This best-selling textbook provides the total technique of plane conceptual layout - from necessities definition to preliminary sizing, configuration format, research, sizing, optimization, and alternate reviews. utilizing a real-world method of the method of layout, this name good points greater than 900 pages of layout tools, illustrations, assistance, reasons, and equations. It comprises overviews of lofting, subsystems, maintainability, producibility, vulnerability, and stealth; thoughts and calculation tools for aerodynamics, balance and keep an eye on, propulsion, buildings, weights, functionality, and price; insurance of traditional and unconventional layout equipment, together with UAV, canard, tandem wing, C-wing, indirect wing, asymmetrical, multi-fuselage, wing-in-ground-effect, and extra.

In a simulator, it is possible to sample these parameters at designated intervals, such as fractions of a second. The resultant time-series plot is extremely useful in presenting a total picture of what happens to the pilot/aircraft system. This is not a direct measurement of the pilot’s arm or hand actions, or the perceptual performance, but is mediated through the aircraft’s instrumentation. However, measurement of arm and hand motions or the pilot’s visual glances would be perhaps a little too molecular and probably would not be measured, except under highly controlled laboratory conditions.

This was also the period when Edwin Link marketed his flight simulator (which became the grandfather of all later flight simulators) as a coin-operated amusement device. During World War II, efforts in aircrew personnel selection led to the Air-Crew Classification Test Battery to predict the success in training and combat (Taylor & Alluisi, 1993). The HF specialists were also involved in a wide variety of activities, including determining human tolerance limits for highaltitude bailout, automatic parachute-opening devices, cabin pressurization schedules, pressure-breathing equipment, protective clothing for use at high altitudes, airborne medical evacuation facilities, and ejection seats (Van Patten, 1994).
