For Experts and future Experts in Aircraft Configuration Layout
Come take the Advanced Follow-On Course for Dr. Raymer's popular 5-day
Aircraft Design Short Course.
Developed for those who, like Raymer, actually work in new aircraft configuration layout, this class in configuration
Layout and Loft provides an expert's insight into the subject covering topics such as
fuselage layout for minimum drag and cost, wing layout for optimal aerodynamics, and the classical
lofting methods upon which current practice is based. The class also discusses modern lofting mathematics as used
in Computer-Aided Design systems, and
includes advice on the best way to use CAD for aircraft concept design. Topics include:
Quickly Getting The Design Started
Configuration Design Graphical Techniques
Wing & Tail Layout Including Airfoil Interpolation & Flat Wrap
(While normally taught over a two-day period with review of critical material from the 5-day class, this class is sometimes
presented as a 1-day intensive course. Check the class announcement for specifics.)
