Introduction

Conceptual Design of Green Transport Airplanes presents key information, methodologies, and modern tools for the conceptual design of airliners that comply with requirements to minimal environmental impact. The book is comprised of eight chapters that address relevant subjects such as airplane technological evolution, feasibility studies, design framework for conceptual design, and flight operations. Important issues and methods for an in-depth feasibility study are presented to facilitate the decision-making process of aircraft programs. These include examples of business plans for a 50-seat and 78-seat regional jets, description of design phases, market strategy, competition among manufacturers, regulatory requirements, and technology assessment.

Readers will also be introduced to modern methodologies used in the conceptual design process of transport airplanes, such as configuration study, aerodynamics, flight stability and control, performance, certification requirements and the role of flight operations. Thus, the design process is explained in an integrated manner which paves the way towards a better understanding of an optimized aeronautical design environment where noise and emission constraints are taken into consideration.

Conceptual Design of Green Transport Airplanes is an essential reference work for aeronautical engineering students and technicians as well as industry professionals involved in the aviation and environmental protection/regulation industry.
