Aeronautical engineering involves designing aircraft such as powered lighter-than-air craft, gliders, fixed-wing airplanes and jets, autogyros, and helicopters. It is primarily involved in designing aircraft that fly within Earth's atmosphere. This special issue consists of research papers concerning specific fields of aeronautical engineering. We look forward to papers involving latest discoveries and improvements in this area.
Aims and Scope:
1. Fluid mechanics/ Aerodynamics
2. Wind tunnels testing
3. Statics and dynamics (engineering mechanics): Study of movement, forces, moments in mechanical systems.
4. Propulsion system: Energy to move a vehicle through the air is provided by internal combustion engines, jet engines and turbo machinery.
5. Control engineering: Mathematical modeling of the dynamic behavior of systems and designing them, usually using feedback signals, so that their dynamic behavior is desirable (stable, without large excursions, with minimum error). This applies to the dynamic behavior of aircraft, propulsion systems, and subsystems that exist on aerospace vehicles.
6. Aircraft structures: Design of the physical configuration of the craft to withstand the forces encountered during flight. Aerospace engineering aims to keep structures lightweight and low-cost, while maintaining structural integrity.
7. Materials science: Materials of which the aerospace structures are to be built. New materials with very specific properties are invented, or existing ones are modified to improve their performance.
8. Solid mechanics: Deals with stress and strain analysis of the components of the vehicle.
9. Aeroelasticity: the interaction of aerodynamic forces and structural flexibility, potentially causing flutter, divergence, etc.
10. Avionics: Design and programming of computer systems on board of an aircraft and the simulation of systems.
