Daniel P. Raymer is an aerospace design engineer widely recognized as an expert in the fields of aircraft conceptual design, design engineering and aircraft configuration and layout. Dan Raymer was born in 1954 at the Fort Ord US Army base. His father is Gordon Raymer, a US Navy pilot then attending the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.

This highly regarded textbook presents the entire process of aircraft conceptual design—from requirements definition to initial sizing, configuration layout, analysis, sizing, and trade studies—in the same manner seen in industry aircraft design groups. Interesting and easy to read, the book has more than 900 pages of design methods, illustrations, tips, explanations, and equations, and has extensive appendices with key data essential to design. The book is the required design text at numerous universities around the world and is a favorite of practicing design engineers.

RDS-STUDENT aircraft design software is a valuable complement to the text. RDS-STUDENT incorporates the design and analysis methods of the book in menu-driven, easy-to-use modules. Like the book, the program is now metric-friendly and all inputs and outputs can be interchanged between metric and fps units with the press of a button. A 69-page user’s manual is provided with the software, along with the complete data files used for the Lightweight Supercruise Fighter design example in the back of the book.

RDS-STUDENT runs on any PC-compatible system (486 or better) and runs on any version of Windows or DOS.

I'm not an Aerospace Engineer, my application was more in in-line with RC use and maybe even kit construction, but I found this book to be quite readable. I would say the best feature was the language use, it never felt like you were being talked down to (like another Aerospace book that I tried to read which will go unmentioned) or overwhelmed with mathematical proofs. Concepts were well explained, and I learned a bit. I found much useful info in this book even though Jet aircraft design was not applicable to me. But given how all of the information was presented the book was at least interesting enough to read in its entirety.

As been pointed out by others, there is not much talk of airfoils and many specifics of piston aircraft.

Very useful design information that was missing from my college aerospace education, which focused mostly on analysis. Lots of practical tips and considerations. I particularly like chapter 7 on lofting. The description of conic lofting is very well written and not available in any of my other references. I have used this technique several times since buying the book. Both for modeling existing parts in order to perform finite element anlysis, and for designing new parts for production.

This is an excellent, and for the time being the authoratative, book about aircraft design. For anyone who wants to become an aerospace engineer reading a book like this should put any type of work they'll do in the proper context.

The best part of this book is that it is split into two halves. The frist half talks specifically about aircraft design from a practical level, covering topics like wing planform selection, thrust to weight and wing loading determination, engine sizing, landing gear configuraiton, etc. This is the applied, design oriented type of knowledge and thinking that all engineers need and is unfortunately not being taught by most schools, albeit it is of course specific to aircraft. (My college had just one ten week aircraft design course over an entire four year curriculum. The course was offered in two sections. Only one of the sections even had this book on the reading list, and then didn't even use it in class!) The second half delves into the analytical methods that are used to "size" different parts of the aircraft, such as methods to predict drag (for engine thrust in cruise), to predict downwash both subsonically and supersonically (effects total lift and stability and control), to determine rough sizes of beam and torsion members of the structure, to size the control surfaces for stability and control, etc. There's also a good interlude where the author gives us a step-by-step example of how you could do conceptual design. (This is not the ONLY way to do conceptual design, but it's important to have SOME method and this is a great introduction to one.) It also has two good example designs in the appendix, plus LOTS of good reference data throughout the book.

This is the type of book that should be read first by anyone involved with aircraft design and/or research and development so that they can understand the big picture framework of how aircraft are generally configured.

My go-to reference book for aircraft design. Provides a nice overview of the entire conceptual design process. Doesn't go into as much detail as some other textbooks such as the Roskham series, but is compact, easy to follow and well written.

This book is very comprehensive, easy to read, and logical in its approach to teaching aircraft design. I also really like its extra sections that go into alternative aircraft designs. The appendix is also really helpful in that it goes through a few examples of taking a variety of aircraft from conceptual design to working out the details of its final dimensions. My coursework did not require that I look at these last resources in the book but they serve well as a starting point for where you can go after an introductory design course.

PRO's:
1. Used heavily in industry in Preliminary Design Groups, at least as a reference
2. Comprehensive at Level 0 sizing of many aircraft
3. Well-organized

CON's:
No/very little provided validation test cases for most anything the author says. You have to take his word for it (or do your own homework) that his equations are legitimate. The book SHOULD, after every major equation (Coefficient of Lift Alpha, Coefficient of Drag, Range, Endurance, etc.), have a table of 10 actual various-type aircraft that has actual flight data or high-end analysis method data (CFD, etc.) associated with them.

For example: 1. ScanEagle UAV (small drone), 2. Legal Eagle (ultralight), 3. Scout XC Apache (trike), 4. Pitts Special S-2B (Biplane), 5. Cessna 172 (tractor config - small certified), 6. VariEze (homebuilt - pusher config), 7. F-15 (military jet), 8. Boeing 747 (large cargo/passenger), 9. Facetmobile (lifting body), 10. B-2 (military flying wing)

Then, for each aircraft, it should state what the provided equation value is, what the actual value is (based off flight data or high-end method results), and percentage off. This would give the designer a better feeling for the fudge factor involved, based off real data.

This book does not contain any of that. Other similar books ("Introduction to Aeronautics: A Design Perspective") do this to a degree. This book does NOT. Use with caution for your particular design!

Mariwyn
this book takes one from initial stages of development thru the necessary engineering calculations, and assists one in determining the design based not upon its flight characteristics, but its mission, a modern concept, well written even for me, and I am no engineer. I read this like one would read the bible. Well, laid out, but its a textbook. Enough said.
