Aerodynamic Design of Transport Aircraft Paperback / softback
by E. Obert
The origin of "Aerodynamic Design of Transport Aircraft" stems from the time when the author was appointed part-time professor in the Aerospace Faculty of Delft University of Technology.
At that time, his main activities were those of leading the departments of Aerodynamics, Performance and Preliminary Design at Fokker Aircraft Company.
The groundwork for this book started in 1987 as a series of lecture notes consisting mainly of pictorial material with a minimum of English explanatory text.
After the demise of Fokker in 1996 one feared that interest in aeronautical engineering would strongly diminish.
As a result of this, the course was discontinued and the relationship between the author and the faculty came to an end.
Two years later the situation was re-appraised, and the interest in aeronautical engineering remained, so the course was reinstated with a former Fokker colleague Ronald Slingerland as lecturer.
The lecture notes from these courses form the foundation of this publication.
