Với mình khi xếp một mảnh giấy thành một chiếc máy bay và phóng nó đi trong không trung, cảm giác lúc đó thật khó tả. Ngày trước mình chuyên gia xé mấy tờ lịch ra xếp thành mấy bay phóng, và vì thế chuyên bị la mắng vì tội làm tờ lịch luôn hiện những ngày trong… tương lai -:-) . Nếu bạn cũng muốn xếp một vật gì đó làm từ giấy và bay được thì 2 quyển sách sau có lẽ bạn nên xem qua.
Cuốn đầu tiên là Advanced Paper Aircraft Construction, đây là bản scan của...
Written for students of aeronautical engineering and based on a range of detailed aircraft design projects, this wide-ranging book draws together the elements of aircraft design and will support any aircraft design project. Written by experienced U.K. and U.S. based authors this is a unique resource that opens up the initial design process, explores the experience of others on similar projects, and clarifies the processes that are behind the equations and calculations used in aircraft design.
The book describes the state of the art and latest advancements in technologies for various areas of aircraft systems. In particular it covers wide variety of topics in aircraft structures and advanced materials, control systems, electrical systems, inspection and maintenance, avionics and radar and some miscellaneous topics such as green aviation. The authors are leading experts in their fields. Both the researchers and the students should find the material useful in their work.
Air travel is continuing to experience the fastest growth among all modes of transport. Increasing total
fuel consumption and the potential impacts of aircraft engine emissions on the global atmosphere have
motivated the industry, scientific community, and international governments to seek various emissions
reduction options. Despite the efforts to understand and mitigate the impacts of aviation emissions, it still
remains uncertain whether proposed emissions reduction options are technologically and financially
In August 1999, the Transportation Research Board (TRB) held a workshop at the
request of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to examine its
Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS) concept.
Throughout the 1990s and into this century, the United States Air Force (USAF) has found it necessary to retain its aircraft fleets for unprecedentedly long service lives. Current plans forecast keeping portions of some existing fleets for as long as 80 years of service. The safety, aircraft availability, and cost implications of that fleetretention policy are unknown. Project AIR FORCE’s Aging Aircraft Project is conducting
Systems engineering and program management (SE/PM) constitute a large portion of the acquisition cost of military aircraft and guided weapons systems. The goal of this study was the development of a set of cost-estimating relationships that can be used to estimate the SE/PM cost element for development and
The U.S. Air Force is grappling with the challenge of aging fleets and when it might be optimal to replace those fleets. This monograph examines commercial aviation data with the goal of drawing inferences and lessons about aging aircraft that may be relevant to the Air Force. It focuses on

This monograph summarizes research conducted by RAND Arroyo Center in support of the 2002 Army Science Board Aviation Study. The purpose of this five-month study was to help the Aviation Panel of the Army Science Board explore and assess survivability concepts and technologies associated with flexible transport aircraft that could be used to make possible new operational maneuver options for the Army’s future force.
This report explores why, in recent decades, military fixed-wing aircraft costs have escalated beyond the rates of commonly used inflation indices, examining both economy-driven factors that the Services cannot control and customer-driven ones that they can. The authors found that this trend of cost increases is true for all types of aircraft
The U.S. Navy’s aircraft carriers allow the nation to deter adversaries, bring airpower to bear against opponents, engage friends and allies, and provide humanitarian assistance. However, these powerful and versatile systems need continuous and regularly scheduled maintenance, and their crews require a great deal
During my experience of teaching aircraft structures I have felt the need for a textbook
written specifically for students of aeronautical engineering. Although there
have been a number of excellent books written on the subject they are now either
out of date or too specialist in content to fulfil the requirements of an undergraduate

The introduction of the technology for bonded composite repairs of metallic
airframe structures could not have come at a more opportune time. Today, many
countries are facing the challenge of aging aircraft in their inventories. These
airframes are degrading due to damage from fatigue cracking and corrosion.
Repair with dependable techniques to restore their structural integrity is
mandatory. The concept of using bonded composite materials as a means to
maintain aging metallic aircraft was instituted in Australia approximately thirty

Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Technology provides a comprehensive, easy-to-understand treatment of the background, development, and applications of the gas turbine engine it its various forms, such as turobjet, turbofan, turboprop, and turboshaft powerplants. Designed primarily as a resource for technicians preparing for the FAA aircraft powerplant mechanic certification, Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Technology also may be used a reference. The text also discusses the changing maintenance and overhaul procedures and philosophies and the role of fuel metering in engine operation....
