Overview

Airplane Design, by Donald R. Crawford takes a continued technical look at the design and performance issues discussed in Crawford's first book "A Practical Guide to Aircraft Performance and Design". This book is written for the aeronautical engineer and student and assumes a good understanding of engineering and mathematics.

The articles and computer programs included in this book were first printed in Kitplanes magazine. They try to attack "bite-sized" pieces of the overall design problem. The programs are written in BASIC so that readers can enter them into their computers and obtain their own numbers. This should be especially useful to aeronautical engineering students involved with their design projects. Details for the mathematical derivations of the relevant equations are included so that there is a solid theoretical basis for the numerical solutions.
