This best-selling textbook presents the entire process of aircraft conceptual design - from requirements definition to initial sizing, configuration layout, analysis, sizing, optimization, and trade studies. Widely used in industry and government aircraft design groups, ´´Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach´´ is also the design text at major universities around the world. A virtual encyclopedia of engineering, it is known for it´s completeness, easy-to-read style, and real-world approach to the process of design. Special features: more than 900 pages of design methods, illustrations, tips, explanations, and equations; overviews of lofting, subsystems, maintainability, producibility, vulnerability, and stealth; concepts and calculation methods for aerodynamics, stability and control, propulsion, structures, weights, performance, and cost; coverage of conventional and unconventional design methods, including UAV, canard, tandem wing, C-wing, oblique wing, asymmetrical, multi-fuselage, wing-in-ground-effect, and more; and, VTOL, helicopter, spacecraft, launch vehicle, hypersonic, and airship design. New topics include: advice on how to become an aircraft designer; electric aircraft, batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells; green airplanes, including biofuels, GTL, hydrogen, methane, and nuclear; active aeroelastic wing and advanced tailless concepts; and enhanced learning materials, including chapter opening summaries with set-the-stage art, descriptive sidebar definitions and tips, and what-we-learned chapter wrap-ups.
Blending Families responds to the need for a book that explores stepparenting by starting with the marriage as the central relationship in a new blended family unit. Just as you are better able to help your child in an airplane emergency if you put your oxygen mask on first, you are better able to blend two families if you take care of the marriage first. Starting with a discussion of attachment styles, the authors explore how those styles translate into the new family unit when trying to forge a new marriage while parenting tween and teen children in a family unit that is new to them as well. They provide parenting guidance premised on the fact that parenting occurs within a context, and in this case a context that is unfamiliar territory for everyone involved. Using true stories throughout, they explore the variety of challenges that may arise, such as sibling rivalry, puberty, dating, emotional and intellectual differences and preferential treatment and offer suggestions for overcoming obstacles to fully blending. By focusing the light on the marriage as the most important source of stability, the authors encourage listeners to develop a style of parenting that works for everyone and brings a sense of unity and strength to the household. 1.
