    Most aerodynamic departments in the aircraft industry use mathematical prediction methods for analysis. Amongst the most popular of these are three dimensional inviscid flow panel methods which compute the change in velocity and direction of air flow over a series of flat panels. To maintain accuracy these panel methods require many panels in highly curved areas such as wing leading edges. The aut... View full abstract»

    Shows the advantage of CADCAM and outlines the development of software which is both easy to use and flexible, for applications in CADCAM of aircraft components in initial stages of parametric design. To limit the task to manageable proportions, it was decided to concentrate on wing components. The package which has been developed does not design all components of a wing, but it mainly concentrate... View full abstract»

    External radiofrequency electromagnetic fields induce currents in conducting parts of the exterior surface of an aircraft. These currents cause new re-radiated fields and this process is fundamental to the detection of the aircraft by distant radar. The surface currents also interact with receiving antennas on the aircraft in various ways, depending on the frequency band. A further issue that is o... View full abstract»

  • An integrated information system for electronic manufacture

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):6/1 - 6/3

    Described in this paper is a fully integrated design-to-manufacture information system. The first part of the paper deals with the automatic conversion of design data into data directly useable in manufacture. This is followed by a description of the data distribution system used to convey information from design to manufacture. Software has been developed to interrogate the CAD model, and to make...

    In order to meet more demanding dynamic performance specifications for pneumatic control systems, designs are becoming increasingly complex and require precision tuning to achieve optimum performance over a wide range of operating conditions. These complex designs are normally a result of an extended development programme which has often required the incorporation of additional components of palli... View full abstract»
