Comprehensively covers research and development initiatives to enhance the environmental sustainability of the aviation sector
Sustainable Aviation Technology and Operations provides an updated and timely outlook of recent research advances in aeronautics and air transport, with emphasis on the overall environmental objectives and current achievements.
The book discusses some of the most promising advances in sustainable aircraft and air traffic management technologies including: aircraft systems, aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, materials, biofuels, autonomous systems, air traffic flow management and dynamic airspace management. The physical processes associated with production and environmental impacts of various aircraft emissions, including air pollutants, noise and contrails, are presented to support the development of computational models for aircraft design, mission planning and trajectory optimisation. Relevant advances in systems engineering and lifecycle management processes are also covered, identifying the existing gaps in both academic research and industry best practices towards developing viable solutions. A set of research case studies concludes and complements the book, addressing aircraft design, systems design and mission optimisation for a more efficient and environmentally sustainable air transport.
* Addresses recent advances in aviation sustainability including multidisciplinary design approaches and multi-objective operational optimisation methods.
* Contains important research and industrially relevant contributions from world-class experts.
* Includes a number of research case studies, addressing aircraft design, propulsion, avionics, alternative aviation fuels and air traffic management solutions.
Sustainable Aviation Technology and Operations is an excellent book for aerospace engineers, aviation scientists, researchers and graduate students involved in the field.
