    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • This course on aircraft design is designed for undergraduate in their third year. The overall objectives of the course are to introduce students with the basic principles, methods and processes used in conceptual aircraft design, with a primary focus on the design aspects of transport aircraft. Students are expected to attend lectures and finish individual and team projects within the schedule, and to demonstrate the ability to accomplish typical analysis tasks in the process of conceptual design, both individually and in teams. Students are also expected to present the results orally and in written report in a professional way.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should:
      Understand the basic principles, methods and processes used in conceptual and preliminary aircraft design;
      1. Be able to perform basic analysis tasks used in the design process
      2. Be able to present the results both orally and in written report
      3. Able to work effectively within a team and individually to solve relevant problems

    • Profile
    • Dr. Wenbin Song has been appointed as associate professor in School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Shanghai Jiao Tong University since 2009. His main research areas include aircraft design, aerodynamic design and optimization, aeroacoustics and computational methods. He is the author of around 50 journal and conference papers and jointly hold two international patents with Roll-Royce employees.

      He graduated from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (now known as Beihang University), China in 1993 with a degree on flight vehicle design and applied mechanics. He obtained his MSc degree in 1996 on structural mechanics in Beijing Institute of Strength and Environment and his PhD degree on computational engineering in 2002 from University of Southampton in the UK.

      He is senior member of AIAA.
