One of few books dedicated to engine testing and a true, recognized market-leader on the subject; Covers all key aspects of this large topic, including test-cell design and setup, data management, and dynamometer selection and use, with new chapters on hybrid testing, OBD (on-board diagnostics) and sensor signals from modern engines. Quest for Performance: The Evolution of Modern Aircraft by Laurence K. Loftin, Jr.. Publisher: United States Government Printing ISBN/ASIN: ISBN Number of pages: Description: This volume traces the technical development of the airplane from a curiosity at the beginning of World War I to the highly useful machine of today. The Aviation Fact File/Modern Fighting Aircraft series comprised a number of large format (almost A3 size) hardback books focusing on modern military aircraft operated by NATO and the West. Each volume included a concise development history and a look at the aircraft's operational career. Some classics - such as the Lockheed C - have somehow stood the test of time while other all-new developments - such as the Lockheed SR - are set to rewrite the aviation record books should they come to fruition. There are a total of [ ] Modern and Future U.S. Aircraft. entries in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by.

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 testing. Subjecting a complete aircraft or its components (such as wings, engines, or electronics systems) to simulated or actual flight conditions in order to measure and record physical phenomena that indicate operating characteristics. The Audiophiliac's top music tracks for testing speakers and headphones. It's nearly impossible to learn what sounds good with bad-sounding : Steve Guttenberg.
Avionics is the cornerstone of modern aircraft. More and more, vital functions on both military and civil aircraft involve electronic devices. After the cost of the airframe and the engines, avionics is the most expensive item on the aircraft, but well worth every cent of the price. The book claims to be an exhaustive survey of military aircraft designed and built since However it completely excludes any 1st generation fighter jets as well as most 2nd generation jets including the likes of the English Electric Lightning, F-8, F, F and F and any Mig prior to the Mig, yet it makes space for 16 pages on the F/5(14). Bill Gunston is a former RAF pilot and flying instructor. An expert on airborne warfare, he has written numerous books on the subject, including Modern Fighting Aircraft, Soviet Air Power, and The U.S. War Machine. He lives in the United Kingdom/5(11). This book builds on earlier RAND research reported in Maintaining Future Military Aircraft Design Capability. 1 This research is part of a larger study effort intended to provide a conceptual framework for analyzing the future of Air.
