Summer Semester 2022: Distance Education in "Aircraft Systems"

For the didactics see: Distance Education.

Go back to the main page for the lecture: Aircraft Systems.

Due to our guest students in class in the summer semester, this page is written in English.

Examination there is a choise. You can participate in the continuous assessment (Quiz and Homework) during the semester (which accounts for 30%) and an standard examination in class at the end of the semester (which accounts for 70%). You will declare on your examination sheet, if you want the continuous assessment to count. If you do not go for it, the standard examination in class will count for 100%.

For the continuous assessment you are given tasks in regular intervals. You can work on these task at any time (you are not bound by the time the lecture is scheduled). But overall, schedule your time, to finish all tasks at the end of the semester and to be well prepared for an examination at the end of the semester. The homework deadlines make sure, we are not loosing track of events during very busy times. The days for each homework given below is only for your reference. The deadline on EMIL to hand in (all) homework sets is 31.07.2022, 23:59 local time.

The course is integration with a Learning Management System (LMS). EMIL = Moodle is used (not so much to present information, but) to add more interactive features in EMIL with direct links: Persistent URLs (PURL):

Prepare your Homework

Prepare your homework in an HTML-Editor:


The buttom opens the HTML-Editor on Alternatively, use the HTML-Editors from (does not work in old browsers) or (limited to 300 words in new browsers). These HTML-Editors have been tested. You can find many more Online HTML-Editors.

Getting started: Video: How to use the/an HTML-Editor and more Video Tutorials for HTMLG.

Writing equations (HTML is not particularly good at it): The HTML-Editor helps you to write subscripts with <sub> and superscripts with <sup>. Find help on Greek and Math (&alpha; => α) and find more Math Symbols. Alternatively you can use an Equation-Editor.

To display pictures in your homework, you need to upload the image to a web server and add the link to the HTML document with an <img> tag. Store your images e.g. with
Example: <img src="">

How to store your results (without paying for membership at the HTML-Editor) and how to display and check your results before uploading in any browser is explained in:
*.pdf Text formatting with the HTML-Editor

Once done:
Copy the HTML-Code from the HTML-Editor.
Paste it as HTML-Code in EMIL for the homework in question. See EMIL for details and further explanations.

Lecture: Aircraft Design, SS 2020, Week 1

1.) Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet adipiscing bibendum sem orci? A question is given in bold face.

In publishing and graphic design, Lorem ipsum is a placeholder text commonly used to demonstrate the visual form of a document. More information on Wikipedia.

Write your homework by copying this text into the right hand (HTML) window of an Online HTML-Editor and start modifying the text in the left (WYSIWYG) window of the Online HTML-Editor to make it your own homework.

Dolor id fringilla ut lacinia sem ut pretium ante, luctus hendrerit porttitor etiam malesuada eleifend vel suscipit fusce molestie posuere venenatis:

2.) Placerat ultrices lacus elementum eu purus, proin ullamcorper class sagittis molestie! A task is given in bold face.

Leo sed dolor quam feugiat ut suscipit praesent fusce bibendum magna mattis (Figure 1), mi laoreet eu orci integer pretium sapien litora sit quisque velit torquent ut aenean per conubia velit (Table 1), dictum gravida viverra nibh curabitur, donec platea lobortis leo tincidunt.

(1)   c = (a2 + b2)½

(2)   v(t) = v0 + a t

(3)   θ = α + γ

Alternatively you can use an Equation-Editor:




Equations start with the equation number on the left. Tables have captions. Figures have subtitles. Tables and figures are numbered separately and are mentioned in the text at least once. A short quotation is done like this: "Be warned, my son, ... Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body." (New International Version, Pred 12,12). A longer quotation can be done in a separate paragraph in italics. The reference is given with the authors family name and the year of publication.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat, sed diam voluptua. At vero eos et accusam et justo duo dolores et ea rebum. Stet clita kasd gubergren, no sea takimata sanctus est Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat, sed diam voluptua.
