Design Developments for Advanced General Aviation Aircraft 911022
The preliminary design studies are presented for an advanced general aviation aircraft. Advanced guidance and display concepts, laminar flow, smart structures, fuselage and wing structural design and manufacturing, and preliminary configuration design are topics to be discussed. This project was conducted as a graduate level design class under the auspices of the KU/NASA/USRA Advanced Design Program in Aeronautics. This paper will present the results obtained during the fall semester of 1990. The project will be continued into the spring semester of 1991.
