4 THRUST-TO-WEIGHT AND WING LOADING, INITIAL SIZING:
manoeuvre selection of wing loading and thrust-to-weight (or horsepower-to-weight) ratio to satisfy requirements such as stall speed, climb rate, and manoeuvrability. Refined estimation of takeoff weight and determination of fuselage, wing, and tail sizes.
5 CONFIGURATION LAYOUT AND LOFT:
Design layout of a credible aircraft configuration arrangement including external geometry, conic lofting, flat-wrap development, smoothness verification, cross-section definition, and internal layout. Design layout of wings and tails including airfoil interpolation, trapezoidal and non-trapezoidal geometries, wing location guidelines.
6 AERO & STRUCTURES CONSIDERATIONS: Design guidance and rules-of-thumb for creation of configuration layouts with good aerodynamics and structural arrangement.
7 SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:

Design impacts of observability (radar, IR, visual, and aural), vulnerability, producibility, and maintainability.

8 SYSTEMS INTEGRATION:
Design integration of landing gear, hydraulics, electrics, pneumatics, and avionics.
9 PAYLOAD, PASSENGERS, & CREW:

About the Instructor -Daniel P. Raymer, Ph.D.

The 2010 recipient of the AIAA Aircraft Design Award, Dr Daniel Raymer is a recognized expert in the areas of Aerospace Vehicle Design and Configuration Layout, Computer-aided Design Methodologies and Design Education. An AIAA Fellow and recipient of the AIAA Summerfield Book award, he was named Rockwell Engineer of the Year for his pioneering work in aircraft computer-aided conceptual design. Dr. Raymer is the author of the best-selling textbook “Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach” and the mass-market books “Dan Raymer’s Simplified Aircraft Design for Homebuilders” and “Living in the Future: The Education and Adventures of an Advanced Aircraft Designer.” He regularly teaches his popular five-day Aircraft Conceptual Design Short Course, a two-day Advanced Aircraft Design Short Course, a three-day Short Course in Aircraft Design Management, Requirements Definition, and System Engineering, and a course in Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) Design.

Dr. Raymer is President of the design and consulting company, Conceptual Research Corporation, and conducts design studies and consulting for NASA, the USAF Research Lab (WPAFB), DARPA, Composite Engineering Inc., and others. He is a regular Forum Speaker at the EAA AirVenture (Oshkosh). His previous positions include Director-Advanced Design with Lockheed, Director-Future Missions at the Aerojet Propulsion Research Institute, and Project Manager-Engineering at Rockwell North American Aviation. He was Head of Air Vehicle Design for X-31 during the conceptual design phases, and was intimately involved in the actual configuration definition. He also consulted with both RAND and CNA during the JAST/JSF concept development phase.

Dr Raymer received B.S. and M.S. engineering degrees in Astronautics and Aeronautics from Purdue, an MBA from the University of Southern California, and a Doctorate of Engineering (PhD) from the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in the field of Aircraft Multidisciplinary Design Optimization. He is a recipient of the Purdue University Outstanding Aerospace Engineer Award given to “honour those alumni who have distinguished themselves in the aerospace industry”.
