Aircraft Body Design (320 hrs)


Aircraft refer primarily to commercial, and business airplanes, and many subsonic and supersonic fighter planes. Owing to an unprecedented growth of air traffic and emergence of new sets of users, there is a constant need to design new aircraft models and passenger aircraft.

Designers need conceptual creativity skills and strong background in aerodynamic, structural and propulsive technologies. Also as the introduction of software tools has drastically changed the aircraft development scene, designers need to acquire skills to use software in aircraft sizing, performance analysis, weight and cost prediction, among others.

Why should you learn?

The course covers technqiues to capture functional objectives, ideation of initial and advanced concepts, creating prototypes, and testing & design of production processes. It also teaches product planning and research.

Learning objectives

The course aims to impart training in all areas of aircraft design including design of aircraft fuselage, aircraft wing, aircraft empennage, and composites. In addition, it lets you gain a good understanding of reverse engineering, and knowledge in computational fluid dynamics for aircraft body.

Providing equal importance to training in CAD software, the course teaches CATIA V5, CATIA Composites, and Ansys Fluent, besides it introduces students to the exciting world of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. Another unique feature of the course is that it introduces project planning and management concepts and best practices in the industry.

Learning outcomes

Getting to know the ins and outs of aeronautical engineering, you will have a sound knowledge of aircraft structure, aircraft body components, and aircraft materials.

You will learn all about fuselage, and its structures. You will be able to design fuselage using CATIA.

You will know of aircraft wing, its structures, and design them with CATIA

You will understand how aircraft empennage and its structures work. You will know how to design them using CATIA

You will get introduced to design of composites involving manual ply creation, ply management, composite grid design, plies generation, creation of standard contour, and limiting of plies from panels.

In reverse engineering, you will know how to do the processing of cloud point data; mesh processing; scans & curves; creating surfaces; surface to solid conversion; and aspects of 3D printing/additive manufacturing such as preparation of print ready file, object placement, print settings, manual controls, environmental factors, and finishing methods.

You will learn the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, ANSYS Fluent software, flow mix and heat transfer, turbulent, transonic, periodic flow, multiple species, radiation and natural convection; analysis of siphoning model, and aircraft-specific models.
