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:

How can we select engineering materials?

How can we select engineering materials? In our previous article, we looked at elastic and magnetic hysteresis. In this article, we’re going to look at how we can select engineering materials.  In other articles, we have previously looked at the different materials and their properties.  However, it’s important that engineers understand how we can go […]

What is hysteresis?

What is hysteresis? In our previous article, we looked at the material modes of failure we need to be aware of in engineering. In this article we’re going to dive into elastic and magnetic hysteresis. Elastic Hysteresis Elastic hysteresis is the difference in strain of a material during loading of stress or strain, versus during […]

What are material modes of failure?

What are material modes of failure? In our previous article we looked at the properties of engineering materials. In this article,  we’re going to dive into material modes of failure and what they are. What is failure? The definition of failure is that the component is no longer fit for use or its designed purpose.  […]
