Design and development of aircraft systems: an introduction
Copublished by American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Professional Engienering Pub., Oct 30, 2004 - Technology & Engineering - 188 pages
Building on the international success of their previous two titles. Aircraft Systems and Civil Avionic Systems, Ian Moir and Allan Seabridge have provided a straightforward introduction to how aircraft systems are designed and evolved, encompassing the systems approach. The design and development process has been given prominence. The reader can thereby become familiar with the means by which the systems of a complex aircraft emerge from a customer requirement and become reality as individual systems, as an integrated system, and as a complete fit-for-purpose aircraft product. For many engineers, the design and development activity takes place at a single domain level--the fuel system, the hydraulic system, flight control system, etc. Increasingly, there is a need to consider integration issues, the bigger picture: for example, the engineer designing the display system will need to consider the entire weapons system. Concentrating on the product life cycle, the design and development process, and the skills required to develop a product as complex as an aircraft, Design and Development of Aircraft Systems is a book for people who want to understand how industry develops a fully integrated, tested, and qualified product that is safe to fly and fit for purpose. Aerospace engineers, both military and commercial, designers, operators, maintenance crew and those studying to become part of the aerospace industry will find Design and Development of Aircraft Systems an invaluable resource.
