This chapter describes transport aircraft design. It discusses the key issues facing aircraft designers, followed by a review of the physical principles underlying aircraft design. Next, the chapter discusses some of the considerations and requirements that designers must satisfy and the configuration options available to the designer. Finally, the airplane design process is described along with some examples being illustrated. Thus, the designer has to have an understanding of a number of aspects of engineering, the economics of air transport, and the regulatory issues.
