Evans Lightplane Designer's Handbook Digital Version (PDF)
THE READY SOURCE of data used in the field of Lightplane Design. The tools rather than the derivations. Presented in a form useful to the "Eyeball" designer as well as the engineer. This requires the use of approx. methods (good enough) where the classical approach requires an engineering background.
145 pages simplified tables/charts. Aero, Engines, Props, Properties of Wood, Aluminum, Steel, Composites, Flight & Landing Loads.
STRESS MADE EASY!
CONTENTS include sizing of wings, tails, ailerons and flaps. Includes family of NACA airfoil charts, simple propeller design with NACA nomograms, Scale engine tracing templates for Continental, Lycoming, VW and Rotax Models with wts, hp and rpm.
