AE6302

ELEMENTS OF AERONAUTICS

 LPTC

3003

OBJECTIVES:
• To introduce the concepts of flying, International standard atmosphere, structural aspects of airplanes, brief description of systems, instruments and power plants used in airplanes.

UNIT I

HISTORY OF FLIGHT

8

Balloon flight – ornithopters - early airplanes by wright brothers, biplanes and monoplanes, developments in aerodynamics, materials, structures and propulsion over the years.

UNIT II

BASICS OF FLIGHT MECHANICS

9

Physical properties and structure of the atmosphere, temperature, pressure and altitude relationships, newton’s law of motions applied to aeronautics - evolution of lift, drag and moment. aerofoils, mach number, maneuvers.


UNIT III

AIRCRAFT CONFIGURATIONS

10

Different types of flight vehicles, classifications. components of an airplane and their functions. conventional control, powered control, basic instruments for flying - typical systems for control actuation.

UNIT IV

AIRPLANE STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS

9

General types of construction, monocoque, semi-monocoque and geodesic constructions, typical wing and fuselage structure. metallic and non-metallic materials, use of aluminium alloy, titanium, stainless steel and composite materials. stresses and strains – hooke’s law – stress - strain diagrams - elastic constants.

UNIT V

POWER PLANTS

9

Basic ideas about piston, turboprop and jet engines - use of propeller and jets for thrust production - comparative merits, principles of operation of rocket, types of rockets and typical applications, exploration into space.

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:
• Identify the component of Flight
• Identify suitable materials for Aircraft structure
• Perform basic calculation on Mechanics using Newton law for lift, drag and moment.
