Aero Design for Aerospace is a course offered in the seventh semester of B. Tech. programs at the School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Objectives

  • To understand and apply aero design principles and methodologies for the conceptual design of an aircraft.
  • To apply concepts learnt in previous semesters to conceptual design.

Course Outcomes

  • CO1: Able to apply basic aerodynamic, propulsion, structural and flight mechanics concepts to practical Design problems and to analyze the effects of design parameters theoretically
  • CO2: Appreciate and understand constraints and compromises needed in practical cases.
  • CO3: Understand issues in various types of flying vehicle design and able to apply basic aerospace concepts for the design of these vehicles
  • CO4: Able to select and conceptually design Propulsion systems and estimate the weight, volume, shape and size of aero-vehicles.
  • CO5: Able to analyze and evaluate weights and stability issues and able to design control surfaces
  • CO6: Able to appreciate and evaluate a design and conduct trade-off studies and market and technological trend studies.
