Aircraft Configuration Design (EGR450)

PREREQUISITE COURSES FOR Aircraft Configuration Design

Course Memo

Given a specification for a small, two-engine turbofan-type airplane, the student develops its overall configuration. Characteristics include fuselage, propulsion system, wing and high-lift devices, tail surfaces, landing gear arrangements, and weight and balance limitations. This is then adapted to a specified mission profile, all in conformance with the appropriate regulatory airworthiness and operational criteria. Lectures are supplemented with laboratory work. Prerequisites: EGR225, EGR260
