The "Derivative" and "Synthetic" Approaches in Aircraft Design
Cheng Bushi (Shanghai Aircraft Research Institute Shanghai, 200232)
This paper discusses the problems of inheritance and development, evolution and revolution in aircraft design, and expounds that the Merivative approach" can be mainly used in the modifications, derivatives, and serial developments of existing prototypes. Applications such as imitation ofexisting .prototypes are limited by historical situations. The correct approach to the aircraft design should be the "synthetic approach". Principles the designer should follow are: fulfilling the requirements, wide learning and choosing the appropriate measures, bringing forth new ideas with creative thinking and innovations, and matching individual disciplines together with optimization techniques.
