A comprehensive approach to the air vehicle design process using the principles of systems engineering
Due to the high cost and the risks associated with development, complex aircraft systems have become a prime candidate for the adoption of systems engineering methodologies. This book presents the entire process of aircraft design based on a systems engineering approach from conceptual design phase, through to preliminary design phase and to detail design phase.
Presenting in one volume the methodologies behind aircraft design, this book covers the components and the issues affected by design procedures. The basic topics that are essential to the process, such as aerodynamics, flight stability and control,Â aero-structure, and aircraft performance are reviewed in various chapters where required.Â Based on these fundamentals and design requirements, the author explains the design process in a holistic manner to emphasise the integration of the individual components into the overall design. Throughout the book the various design options are considered and weighed against each other, to give readers a practical understanding of the process overall.Â
Readers with knowledge of the fundamental concepts of aerodynamics, propulsion, aero-structure, and flight dynamics will find this book ideal to progress towards the next stage in their understanding of the topic. Furthermore, the broad variety of design techniques covered ensures that readers have the freedom and flexibility to satisfy the design requirements when approaching real-world projects.
?Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Provides full coverage of the design aspects of an air vehicle including: aeronautical concepts, design techniques and design flowcharts
?Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Features end of chapter problems to reinforce the learning process as well as fully solved design examples at component level
?Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Includes fundamental explanations for aeronautical engineering students and practicing engineers
?Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Features a solutions manual to sample questions on the book?s companion website

This book is the first to bridge the often disparate bodies of knowledge now known as applied mechanics and materials science. Using a very methodological process to introduce mechanics, materials, and design issues in a manner called "total structural design," this book seeks a solution in "total design space" Features include:

"I've worked with simulation in business for over 20 years, and Allman really nails it with this book. I admit that I own his previous book on structured finance cash flows, but I was surprised by what I found in here. He addresses the fundamental questions of how decision makers react to simulations and his read was very much in accordance with what I've experienced myself. When it came to the nuts and bolts of describing the different types of simulation analysis the book becomes incredibly detailed. There is working code and models for a fantastic array of the most common simulation problems. If you're so inclined, the book very carefully steps through the tricky math needed to really understand the theory behind stochastic modeling in finance. If you're preparing models that include any kind of randomization or stochastic modeling component, this book is a must-read, a tremendous value and time-saver." ? David Brode of The Brode Group
A practical guide to understanding and implementing financial simulation modeling
As simulation techniques become more popular among the financial community and a variety of sub-industries, a thorough understanding of theory and implementation is critical for practitioners involved in portfolio management, risk management, pricing, and capital budgeting. Financial Simulation Modeling in Excel contains the information you need to make the most informed decisions possible in your professional endeavors.
Financial Simulation Modeling in Excel contains a practical, hands-on approach to learning complex financial simulation methodologies using Excel and VBA as a medium. Crafted in an easy to understand format, this book is suitable for anyone with a basic understanding of finance and Excel. Filled with in-depth insights and expert advice, each chapter takes you through the theory behind a simulation topic and the implementation of that same topic in Excel/VBA in a step-by-step manner.
Created for those with some background in finance and experience in Excel, this reliable resource shows you how to effectively perform sound financial simulation modeling, even if you've yet to do extensive modeling up to this point in your professional or academic career.
This practical guide covers all phases of the application of Total Quality Management (TQM) to product design and development - from initial concept to customer support - addressing critical questions such as: What is total quality and how is total quality managed in the real world? What does total quality cost? How is TQM useful in the computer and software industries? Who controls the quality of tangible products? Where do procedures and processes management and employee motivation come in?
