66 Aircraft Engineering Questions and Answers:

1 :: What is Aerospace engineering?

Aerospace engineering is the primary branch of engineering concerned with the research, design, development, construction, testing, science and technology of aircraft and spacecraft. It is divided into two major and overlapping branches:
Aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering. Aeronautics deals with aircraft that operate in Earth's atmosphere, and astronautics deals with spacecraft that operate outside the Earth's atmosphere.

2 :: Define aeronautical engineering?

Aeronautical engineering was the original term for the field. As flight technology advanced to include craft operating in outer space, the broader term "aerospace engineering" has largely replaced it in common usage. Aerospace engineering, particularly the astronautics branch, is often referred to colloquially as "rocket science", such as in popular culture.

3 :: What is ram jet?

A ramjet, sometimes referred to as a stovepipe jet, or an athodyd, is a form of jet engine with no moving parts. Ramjets cannot produce thrust at zero airspeed and thus cannot move an aircraft from a standstill.

4 :: Who is aircraft maintenance engineer (AME)?

An aircraft maintenance engineer (AME) is a licensed person who carries out and certifies aircraft maintenance. This same title is used in a number of different countries. A licensed aircraft maintenance engineer (L-AME) is an AME with an inspection authorization.

5 :: Describe liquid metal?

Mercury. "Liquid metal" is a type of alloy, a mix of three or more metals, with end results of similar properties and characteristics to plastic that cools faster and has more than twice the strength of titanium.

6 :: What is SPICE? Where was SPICE developed?

SPICE is Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis. This is analog simulator which was developed at electronics research lab of California University.

7 :: List the main areas in Aviation?

★ Artificial intelligence
★ Aircrafts and parts
★ Advanced materials, composites and specialty metals
★ Computers, electronic components and systems
★ Fighters and attack aircraft
★ Government defense policies and goals
★ Lasers
★ Navigation controls and guidance systems
★ Ordinance and Military vehicles
★ Computers, electronic components and systems
★ Aviation electronic/Avionics
★ Robotics
★ Satellites
★ Search and detection equipments
★ Strategic defensive initiative
★ Sensors and instrumentation
★ Ships
★ Space vehicles and commercialization of space

8 :: What made you choose aircraft maintenance engineering/aerospace engineer line as your career?

In aircraft maintenance/aerospace engineering there are lots of interesting topics which include rocketry, aeroplanes. As a school student I started sketching for future aircraft and space craft,military aircraft. I analyzed the importance of space travel, aviation history, and aerospace industry and hence decided to get into this field.

9 :: What are the day to day responsibilities of Aerospace engineering?

Each job profile even in aerospace industry differs from others. To mainly speak about aerospace there are two branches or field. One is aeronautical and other is astronautics engineering.

10 :: Explain the difference between Aeronautical Engineering and Astronautical Engineering?

★ Aeronautical engineering deals with vehicles which operates in the atmosphere
★ Aeronautical engineering deals with vehicles operating in space.
★ Aeronautical engineering works on tunnel tests, analyzing flight test data, manned space flights, planning future space missions, spacecraft operations, designing and testing robotic systems, developing new propulsion system, computing optimum flight trajectories,developing communication systems for distance space probes and designing new rockets.

★ Astronautical engineer includes designing power systems for spacecraft structure, developing communications systems for distant space probes, developing hardware skills for operations in spacecraft, designing and testing robotic systems, developing new propulsion systems and computing optimum flight.
