Summary

Aerospace engineering is a very competitive environment and yet highly regulated, so innovation and change, while essential, must be carefully managed. This book looks at aircraft engineering in terms of how innovation is promoted or inhibited and what 'drives┐ the innovative design of aircraft and their systems. The book reviews factors affecting design, such as environmental and human factors, processes for managing innovation and innovative technologies in such areas as jet engines, supersonic air travel, avionics and morphing technologies to alter aerodynamic shape.
