Fundamentals of Aircraft and Airship Design, Volume 2 - Airship Design and Case Studies examines a modern conceptual design of both airships and hybrids and features nine behind-the-scenes case studies. It will benefit graduate and upper-level undergraduate students as well as practicing engineers. The authors address the conceptual design phase comprehensively, for both civil and military airships, from initial consideration of user needs, material selection, and structural arrangement to the decision to iterate the design one more time. The book is the only available source of design instruction on single-lobe airships, multiple-lobe hybrid airships, and balloon configurations; on solar- and gasoline-powered airship systems, human-powered aircraft, and no-power aircraft; and on estimates of airship/ hybrid aerodynamics, performance, propeller selection, S&C, and empty weight. The book features numerous examples, including designs for airships, hybrid airships, and a high-altitude balloon; nine case studies, including SR-71, X-35B, B-777, HondaJet, Hybrid Airship, Daedalus, Cessna 172, T-46A, and hang gliders; and full-color photographs of many airships and aircraft.
