Aircraft Design – How to use Wing and Thrust Loading in your designs

This 18-minute video is the first tutorial in our new aircraft design series. The topic is how designers use thrust loading and wing loading to select propulsion units, and size aircraft wings in the concept design stage.

If this video interests you, you can learn more about aerospace and aircraft design in our online Higher International Certificate in Aerospace Engineering. Or why not check out the online engineering short courses specifically in aerospace engineering:

The characteristics of basic semiconductors

The characteristics of basic semiconductors In some of our previous articles on Electrical and Electronic Engineering we’ve looked at induction, waveforms and capacitance.  We’re now going to move on to looking at semiconductors and how they fit in to these principles. What is a semiconductor? Semiconductors form the basis of all microprocessors and integrated circuits.  […]

Trigonometric representation of periodic waveforms.

Trigonometric representation of periodic wave forms While we’ve already looked at periodic wave forms in a previous article, we’re going to jump into the trigonometric representations and see some of the essential calculations we need. Before we jump in, just to refresh our memory, let’s look at an image of two sinusoidal waveforms ‘in phase’:  […]

What are the principles of inductance and capacitance?

What are the principles of inductance and capacitance? In our previous article on inductance, we jumped into the behaviour of inductance and what it is.  Now we’re going to look at the principles of inductance, as well as the principles of capacitance. Inductance and Capacitance. We’ve already touched on the surface of inductance in our […]
