Computerized Systems for Aerospace Engineers to practice design

Computerized Systems for Aerospace Engg
The days of tedious manual testing are finally gone. Yes, today there is Computerized Systems now allow aerospace engineers to practice designing and analyze right from their desks.


In the early 1900's designers had no option but to build models of their aircraft and place them in wind aircraft and place them in wind tunnels through which air could be blown to simulate flight. While valuable information was gained from this method there were still many questions that remained unanswered because the interactions of all the forces on an aircraft were too complex to be analysed accurately with the manual and painstaking wind tunnel process.

Faster Technology

The introduction of computers completely revolutionized the field. Now, massive quantities of data can be gathered and tested quickly using modern technological innovations such as flight simulators, motion systems, virtual runways and computational fluid simulators dynamic systems.

Advanced in computer graphics have also made it possible for engineering students to just sit at their desk and watch a computer-generated airplane fly- complete with options to check aircraft airflow, force and pressure as well as fly the plane from take off to landing.

From simulators that let students test fly and plane from around the world in a closed capsule to air traffic control rooms where students can practice managing air traffic at over 500 different airports- aeronautics is a fast growing industry and field of study. And also, Indian students are traveling far and wide to learn from the best in the field.

An expert, head of Engineering, University of Glamorgan said "Our undergraduate programme in aircraft maintenance engineering is a popular option for today's young students from across the world. This course is a blend of theoretical teaching and practical exposure".
