Since the education of aeronautical engineers at Delft University of Technology started in 1940 under tae inspiring leadership of Professor H.J. van der Maas, much emphasis has been placed on the design of aircraft as part of the student's curriculum. Not only is aircraft design an optional subject for thesis work, but every aeronautical student has to carry out a preliminary airplane design in the course of his study. The main purpose of this preliminary design work is to enable

Although the overall appearance of modern airliners has not changed a lot since the introduction of jetliners in the 1950s, their safety, efficiency and environmental friendliness have improved considerably. Main contributors to this have been gas turbine engine technology, advanced materials, computational aerodynamics, advanced structural analysis and on-board systems. Since aircraft design became a highly multidisciplinary activity, the development of multidisciplinary optimization (MDO) has become a popular new discipline. Despite this, the application of MDO during the conceptual design phase

Load analysis is an indispensable preliminary element of aircraft structural design, defining aerodynamic, inertial, and operational loads that the airframe must be equipped to react to. Snorri Gudmundsson (author of General Aviation Aircraft Design) sets out to provide a clear and practical study of load analysis for general aviation aircraft-the first book on the market to do so. From explaining basic concepts like aerodynamic and inertial loads to covering new practical methods for calculation (including numerical and experimental analyses), General
