Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineering is the discipline that is concerned with the research, design, development, construction, testing, science and technology of aircrafts. This type of engineering is divided into two subsections, aeronautical engineering an astronautical engineering. Aerospace engineering deals with the physical properties of aircrafts, rockets, flying craft and spacecraft’s and the science behind it. The field cover aerodynamic characteristics and behaviors of such objects.

Aircrafts are subject to demanding conditions that undergo extreme changes in atmospheric pressure and temperature. There are various technological and engineering disciplines that are required to consult on these objects that fall under the category of aerospace engineering.

The development and manufacturing of a modern flight vehicle is very complex. It demands careful balance and compromise between abilities, design, available technology and costs. Aerospace engineers design, test and supervise the manufacturing of aircraft, spacecraft’s and missiles. They develop new technologies for use in aviation, defence systems and space. 

Reliability maths problems and solutions

Hello Sir, In order to save time and effort. You don't need to provided a detail solution like you did on the last two questions. Please use the direct formula and provide a brief solution and answer. Thank you for all your assistance. 1. A component experiences failures at a constant rate (CFR) with an MTTF of 1100 hou

Reliability, failure analysis and problem solving

1. A Porsche GT3 Cup car's engine has a mean time between failures of 250 hours, where the failure rate is constant. Suppose that a certain race requires failure-free operation of the engine for 20 hours. What is the probability that the engine will complete the race without failure? Please round your answer to 2 decimals. 2.

Relaibility and Failure statisitcs and maths

Please see attachment for PDF functions in question 1 - 3 1. A manufacturing company produces many different products for wholesale distribution. Its flagship product, a reverse cylindrical dipolar tube, has a failure distribution given by the following PDF: f(t)= {█(0.000192t^2 0≤t≤25 years@0 els

Probability and Reliability

Q1. A smoke detector is routinely inspected. 80% of the detectors found inoperative had experienced a power surge, and 10% of those found in operating condition had experienced a power surge. 20% of the detectors inspected have failed. What is probability of a detector failing given it experiences a power surge? Q2. The time

4 Pillars of Safety Management System

List and explain the "4 Pillars" of SMS. List and explain the "4 Pillars" of SMS. Assess their value in creating a "proactive and predictive" safety program. Remember, you must have a title page, 300 word body written in 3rd person, and at least two references.

Mechanical Engineering Dynamics

An airplane flies with constant velocity along a circular path in the vertical plane. Th radius of the circular path is 5000 ft. The pilot weighs 150 lbs. a. Determine the velocity of the airplane required for pilot to experience weightlessness at the top of the circular path. b. Determine the force exerted on the piot by

High school Yr 12 aeronautical Engineering Module - mechanics

PLease help- i seem to get the incorrect answer but didn't know where i have gone wrong? Problem: If each wing is to be 4.8m long and the lift force acts at 45% of the distance from the wing root, what will be the bending moment if the lift force is 9KN? What will be the bending stress if (Ixx = 1.8*10 power6 metres to the 10

Steady flow air compressor

A steady flow air compressor compresses 50 lb/min from 14 psia and 80 degrees F to a discharge state at 45 psia and 300 degrees F. Heat departs from the air only via circulating water that enters the jacket at 75 degrees F and leaves at 95 degrees F, circulating at the rate of 15lb/min. Let the frictional losses external to th
