Aircraft Design: Configuration Layout, Loft, & CAD Training Course – Hands-on
Aircraft Design: Configuration Layout, Loft, & CAD Training, developed for those who actually work in new aircraft configuration layout, this class in configuration Layout and Loft provides an expert’s insight into the subject covering topics such as fuselage layout for minimum drag and cost, wing layout for optimal aerodynamics, and the classical lofting methods upon which current practice is based. The class also discusses modern lofting mathematics as used in Computer-Aided Design systems, and includes advice on the best way to use CAD for aircraft concept design. Topics include:
Quickly Getting The Design Started
Configuration Design Graphical Techniques
Wing & Tail Layout Including Airfoil Interpolation & Flat Wrap
Aircraft Lofting Methods & Mathematics
Computer-Aided Configuration Design
Analytical Geometry, Conics, Splines, Fairing, Bsplines, Nurbs, Surface Fitting, Curve Smoothing, & Parametric Surface Patches
- We can adapt this training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
- If you are familiar with some aspects of this training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
- We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the training around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
- If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
