9781481892193: A Generalized Engineering Design Procedure: A thesis in Aerospace Engineering

A basic engineering design theory is created that includes the development of a generalized engineering design procedure. A specific objective is to find the best design that satisfies a given design goal. A more general and powerful objective is to find all of the best designs, and the families of designs, that satisfy an entire field of design problems. A non-dimensional approach is typically used to simplify the procedure and find fundamental design forms. Many examples of the design procedure are provided, often leading to surprising new design results. Emphasis is placed on the understanding and use of this new theory and the resulting generalized design procedure. Together, the design theory and the procedure provide a better understanding of the design process, design goals, design variables, design forms, optimum designs, optimization criteria, direct relationships between design problems and their solutions, design fields and families, scaling laws, optimized scaling and the best ways to graph design results. Examples of the design procedure range from simple to complex; and cover hydrodynamic, aeronautical and mechanical design fields. The many examples include hydrofoils, aircraft wings, and underwater vehicles. Most of these examples are basic and broad enough to be considered classic. Additionally, the theory and procedure can be used in disciplines other than engineering. Furthermore, aspects of the theory and procedure are helpful in research and invention.

About the Author:

Dr. Lang has B.S. degrees in mechanical and civil engineering from Caltech, an M.S. degree in aeronautics from USC, and a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from The Pennsylvania State University. His experience in engineering includes design, research, analysis, invention, prototyping and management. He is the owner of a small business corporation that specializes in R&D that is based on his many patents. Prior to founding this business, he was employed at a Naval Laboratory in San Diego where he initiated and headed the Advanced Concepts Division. Among his various inventions, Dr. Lang is best known for his invention of the modern SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) ship concept, including eight patents, for which he received the SWATH Pioneer Award from seven leading U.S. engineering societies, and an earlier award from the Marine Technical Society. For his overall accomplishments in hydrodynamics, he received the prestigious David W. Taylor Medal from the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers in 2000. Dr. Lang has over eighty publications, mostly on new concepts related to SWATH ships, hydrofoil craft, drag reduction, propulsion and underwater vehicles.
