Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to

  • to collect information on a topic chosen from a pool of given in-depth topics of aircraft design by literature studies, use of the internet or contacting companies
  • build calculation models independently, if necessary, and carry out and document the calculations
  • summarise topic-specific information in a structured manner in a manuscript
  • compile a presentation on the chosen topic
  • give a 30-minute presentation on the chosen topic to the students registered for the seminar
  • discuss the content of the presentation with the students of the seminar
  • to participate in professional discussions as a seminar participant.

Subject of course

Special problems of aircraft design are worked out by the seminar participants in the form of independent contributions under the technical supervision of the institute, prepared as a manuscript and lecture, presented and discussed. The topics are taken from annually changing areas of aircraft design and proposed to the participants for selection. Example topics: Numerical aircraft design. Derivation of low parametric statistical models from complex data sets. Parameter studies and optimisation. Propulsion integration. Glider design.

Teaching methods

After selecting the topic to be worked on, students are assisted in finding suitable literature. The manuscript will be sent to the instructor via email before the presentation and uploaded by the instructor in TISS or TUWEL for all participating students. After the lecture, the students are invited to discuss the presentation. The quality of the presentation will be discussed by and with the students, questions will be asked about the content and the new insights they have gained from the presentation will be discussed.
