Aerospace Vehicles Design (EAS411)

Synopsis

In this course, the methods are used to design aircraft, including technical, business and management aspects of design as applied to both the civil and military aerospace domains. The course is delivered by an academic staff of Cranfield University.

Level: 4
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every July

Topics

  • Design and analysis of composite structures.
  • Aircraft Stability and Control.
  • Design for Manufacture and Operation.
  • Fatique Fracture Mechanics and Damage Tolerance.
  • Flight Experimental Methods and Detail Stressing.

Learning Outcome

  • Carry out the design and analysis methods required of composite structures as used in aerospace vehicles
  • Describe the aspects of aircraft stability and control in the design of aerospace vehicles.
  • Produce a conceptual design of a given aerospace vehicle that meets input design specifications for manufacture and operation.
  • Explain the principles of fatigue fracture mechanics and damage tolerance used in the design process of aerospace vehicles.
  • Discuss and use flight experimental methods and detail stressing to produce a conceptual design of a aerospace vehicle given users’ input/specification.
