Airplane Design Part V: Component Weight Estimation is the fifth book in a series of eight volumes on airplane design. The airplane design series has been internationally acclaimed as a practical reference that covers the methodology and decision making involved in the process of designing airplanes. Educators and industry practitioners across the globe rely on this compilation as both a textbook and a key reference.

Airplane Design Part V: Component Weight Estimation familiarizes the reader with the following fundamentals:

  • Class I method for estimating airplane component weights

  • Class I method for estimating airplane moments of inertia

  • Class II methods for detailed airplane component and grouping weights

  • V-n diagram methods

  • Class II method for structure weight

  • Class II method for powerplant weight

  • Class II method for fixed equipment weight

  • Data and methods for center of gravity location of individual components

  • Class II method for airplane moments and products of inertia

  • Data base for airplane component weights

  • Data base for airplane non-dimensional radii of gyration
