"Fundamentals of Fighter Design" is one of two books written by aerodynamicist Ray Whitford that survey the anatomy of fighter aircraft. As in his older book "Design for Air Combat", Whitford breaks down the various areas that make up an airplane - the aerodynamics, power plants, avionics, weapons and weapons systems and control by: 9.

Ray Whitford examines present and future design solutions against the historic background of fighter evolution that occurred whenever science and engineering increased the aircraft designer's parameters.

Each chapter focuses on an aspect of fighter technology. This book focuses on the British approach to fighter design, construction, and mass production. Initially the French led the way in Allied fighter development with their Bleriot trainers then nimble Nieuport Scouts—culminating with the powerful, fast gun platforms as exemplified by the Spads.

The Lockheed design team, under the direction of Hall Hibbard and Clarence "Kelly" Johnson, considered a range of twin-engine configurations, including both engines in a central fuselage with push–pull propellers. The eventual configuration was rare in terms of contemporary fighter aircraft design, with the preceding Fokker G.1, the contemporary Focke-Wulf Fw.

The Heinkel He Volksjäger (German, "People's Fighter"), the name of a project of the Emergency Fighter Program design competition, was a German single-engine, jet-powered fighter aircraft fielded by the Luftwaffe in World War was designed and built quickly and made primarily of wood as metals were in very short supply and prioritised for other aircraft.

The technical books below have proven useful during years of aircraft conceptual design experience in industry and during the writing of AIRCRAFT DESIGN: A Conceptual Approach, the RDS design software, and Dan Raymer's Simplified Aircraft Design for Homebuilders.I actually own almost every one of them and use them often.

Aircraft Design – a Conceptual Approach – Fourth edition; and RDSStudent: Software for Aircraft Design, Sizing and an Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, The design of fighter aircraft used to be a race for performance.

There was the race for maximum speed, followed by the aim for maximum climb performance, and eventually concluded with the emphasis on sustained turn capability. As a result, the installed thrust-to-weight ratio (T/W) continuously increased and has now exceeded the value of 1.

A fighter aircraft, often referred to simply as a fighter, is a military fixed-wing aircraft designed primarily for air-to-air combat against other aircraft. The key performance features of a fighter include not only its firepower but also its high speed and maneuverability relative to the target aircraft.

The fighter's main tactical purpose is to establish air superiority over the battlefield. rules that are gathere d from aircraft design books. These books are very well accompl ished on the area and hi ghly trustworthy sources for a wide rang e of analysis approaches.

In this paper conceptual design of an Air Superiority Fighter Aircraft is proposed to carry 1 crew member (pilot) that can fly at maximum Mach No of covering a. The book also includes a chapter on electric aircraft design along with a full range of industry standard aircraft sizing analyses.

Split into two parts, Conceptual Aircraft Design: An Industrial Approach spends the first part dealing with the pre-requisite information for configuring aircraft so that readers can make informed decisions when. This book, therefore, will primarily act as an introduction to the whole field of aircraft design leading towards the subjects summarized in Fig.

It will not attempt to duplicate material found in existing design books, but will give information about the whole aircraft design environment together with descriptions of aircraft and. This book offers an interesting and brief review of the fighter aircraft from World War 1 to current day.

Because of the large range of aircraft the authors needed to condense the information they were able to provide, thus this book is an overview only (and at a /5(5). experience in the conceptual airplane design.

Also it is supposed that students refer to textbooks and other scientific Russian and foreign sources, which seems difficult at first.

In this case this tutorial should be used as a guide-book for additional information sources. The Boulton Paul Defiant is a British interceptor aircraft that served with the Royal Air Force (RAF) during World War Defiant was designed and built by Boulton Paul Aircraft as a "turret fighter", without any forward-firing guns, also found in the Blackburn Roc of the Royal Navy.

In combat, the Defiant was found to be reasonably effective at destroying bombers but .The Fighter Mafia was a controversial group of U.S. Air Force officers and civilian defense analysts who, in the s, advocated for fighter design criteria that challenged the conventional thinking and ideologies of the time.

Their assertions were that: Air Force generals established the wrong criteria for combat effectiveness, ignoring combat history.This section is brimming with information and often rare photographs of truly classic fighter aircraft including the Bristol Fighter, Spitfire and P Mustang.

The second section of the book focuses on the remarkable advances of post-World War II, mainly jet, aircraft from to the present day, and includes the MiG, Hunter, Harrier and F.
