Aircraft Engine Controls

2009-01-01
This book covers the design of engine control and monitoring systems for both turbofan and turboshaft engines, focusing on four key topics: • Modeling of engine dynamics • Application of specific control design methods to gas turbine engines • Advanced control concepts • Engine condition monitoring Although principally concerned with aircraft engines, this book is applicable to all air, land, and sea-based gas turbines, since most of the issues in designing other gas turbine control systems will be subsumed within the substantial challenges inherent in designing aviation gas turbine control systems. This book is not only a comprehensive resource for understanding the design of modern turbine engine control and monitoring systems, it can also be used as a reference for engineers and researchers designing control and monitoring systems for other industrial equipment and systems. The book is based on a course on gas turbine engine controls developed and taught by Dr. Jaw and Dr.

Designing an aircraft is a complex, multifaceted process embracing many technical challenges in a multidisciplinary environment. Aircraft Design explores fixed winged aircraft design at the conceptual phase of a project. The methodology shown includes formal sizing of the aircraft, engine matching, and substantiating performance to comply with the customer's demands and government regulatory standards. Associated topics include safety issues, environmental issues, material choice, structural layout, understanding flight deck, avionics, and systems (for both civilian and military aircraft). Cost estimation and manufacturing considerations are also discussed. The book includes extensive illustrations of production aircraft, as well as worked-out examples of standard industry aircraft. Intended for undergraduate and graduate students, Aircraft Design will also serve as an indispensible reference for those working in the aerospace engineering field.

Birdflight as The Basis of Aviation

2001-01-01
Scientists and aviation enthusiasts from around the world will find this one of the most important books ever published. It's the work of the German aviation pioneer and creative genius, Otto Lilienthal, whose observation, analysis, ingenuity and daring laid the foundation for the development of aviation. The "Flying Man" Lilienthal was the first man to launch himself into the air, fly, and land safely. First published in 1891, this new edition is an unabridged copy of the original complete with Lilienthal's own diagrams and formulae, and a preface written in 1911 by A.W. Isenthal, who translated the original into English after Lilienthal's death. After a comprehensive scientific study of how birds fly, Lilienthal recognized the superiority of curved wing surfaces. He then developed a theory of flight and designed and built a series of gliders. From 1891 to 1896 he made over 2,000 glides-bridging the gap between those who dreamed of flying and those who flew.

Contemporary Issues Shaping China's Civil Aviation Policy

2009-11-01
The emergence of China as a future major participant in international aviation raises some interesting questions, especially from a strategic policy perspective. The progressive shift from a command to a mixed-market economy under the central leadership of Bejing now finds itself faced with the need to balance a strategic duality relating to the role of China's civil aviation industry. This situation requires the design and accommodation of a growing role for China's mainstream carriers, within the operational context of complex challenges from increasing international market competition. Contemporary Issues Shaping China’s Aviation Policy explores the political, economic and strategic issues raised by the inevitable tension between the domestic and international aspects of Beijing's current civil aviation strategy.

The Engines of Pratt & Whitney

2010-01-01
This book describes the evolution from piston engines to gas turbines by the engineers who created those engines. Included are hundreds of archival photographs, as well as over a dozen tables listing specifications and applications. The story starts with the founding of the company in the 1920's to provide reliable air-cooled piston engines to the military and to help create coast-to-coast commercial flight service. Pratt & Whitney quickly dominated commercial and military flight in the 1930's - ultimately providing half the horsepower of American engines during WWII. Jack Connors explains how Pratt & Whitney came from behind the competition on developing gas turbines after the war with the debut of the J57, which powered the B-52 in 1952 and later the Air Force Century Series fighters (F-100, F-101, F-102) and the Navy A3D, F4D, and F-8 airplanes.

Computational Aeroacoustics

2008-12-01
Computational Aeroacoustics is a field that deals with the simulation of sound generated by unsteady flows and is a rapidly growing area due to advances in computational power and the significant projected growth in global transportation. With the era of widespread supersonic flight and the proliferation of general aviation aircraft on future horizons, the noise generated by aircraft is of great concern for communities near airports, for passengers in the aircraft's cabin, and for the structural integrity of the airframe. In addition, there are a number of situations that desire lower noise including underwater vehicles, wind turbines, and helicopter rotors. Understanding the source of the noise itself, its manifestation in the nearfield and propagation to the farfield are all critical in the development of future noise reduction technologies.
