Summary
"Aerospace Design explores the physical aspects of aviation and space flight: the evolution of vehicle design, the influence of aesthetics, the history of the streamlined idiom, and the fundamental way in which designers meld form with function. The book is illuminated throughout with images that capture not only moments in history, but also the realization of theories and ideas. Each chapter, written by a specialist in aerospace history or aerospace technology, examines an aspect of the evolution of flight, from ground-testing designs and components to the aircraft and spacecraft themselves. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in aircraft, spacecraft, or the broader issues of design."--BOOK JACKET
