The history of EWADE is briefly explained for those new to the workshop. The first workshop was held in 1994 on invitation only. EWADE has links to several other workshops and organizations: READ, CEAS, SCAD and AWADE (in order of the length of the established contact). EWADE is an important activity in the CEAS Technical Committee Aircraft Design (TCAD) together with SCAD. Both share the URL www.AircraftDesign.org. Available presentations from EWADE reach back to the year 2000. In some cases full papers were written after the presentation. Also these are published on the web page. EWADE has always discussed possibilities for journal publications in aircraft design. Several cooperations exist.
Presentation 1.2 Octavian Pleter, Sterian Dănăilă University Politehnica of Bucharest (UPB), RO Education in Aerospace Engineering at the University "Politehnica" of Bucharest Romanian has contributed to pioneering aviation. The University "Politehnica" of Bucharest (UPB) stands in this tradition. Higher education in aviation started in 1928, when Prof. Elie Carafoli opened the first conference on Aeronautics at the Polytechnic school in Bucharest. He also built the first wind tunnel in South-Eastern Europe (1931), still in operation. Today, graduates from the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering can be found in all sectors of aviation and space in many countries of the world. Alumni of the faculty have contributed to major aerospace programs. UPB is active in aerospace research and teaching and offers Bachelor and Master degrees as well as doctoral studies. Fields of study are: Aerospace Constructions, Propulsion Systems, Equipment and Aviation Instruments, Engineering and Management in Aeronautics, Air Navigation, Aeronautical Design. 180 to 200 students commense their studies in the faculty each year. The faculty has more than 1000 students, more than 40 professors and lecturers, several laboratories. An international network with partner universities results in many opportunities for incoming and outgoing students.

Presentation 1.3 Petter Krus Linköping University (LiU), SE Aircraft Systems Engineering and Concept Evaluation Methods and tools are presented that facilitate the evaluation of aircraft system concepts in various ways. One such tool is HOPSAN-NG. It allows a wide range of simulations from the aircraft hydraulic system, via aircraft dynamics up to the simulation of a whole aircraft mission based on pre-defined way points. This allows an evaluation of the aircraft including its fuel consumption due to aircraft systems and the evaluation of many more details of the aircraft's behavior.

Presentation 1.4 Fabrizio Nicolosi University of Naples "Federico II" (UNINA), IT Innovative Tools for Aircraft Preliminary Design – Development, Applications and Education The Design of Aircraft and Flight Technologies Research Group (DAF) at University of Naples is involved in research activities addressing the development and application of new and innovative tools and frameworks for aircraft preliminary design. To build such new tools for aircraft design we believe that the following activities should be carried out: (a) derive new semi-empirical formulations (even through the construction of surrogate methods) which can be more accurate in the prediction of aircraft characteristics (especially for non-conventional configurations); (b) integrate medium to high fidelity tools into the analyses; (c) design with a multi-disciplinary approach (i.e. including systems and direct operating costs); (d) include innovative propulsive systems; (e) deal with innovative configurations; (f) include new and efficient optimization algorithms; (g) use advanced software engineering to enhance tool capabilities, speed and usability (for example user-friendly graphic interface or inter-operability with other software). Recent research activities of the DAF group have been focused on the development and application of a new framework. Examples and applications in relevant European research projects can be presented. The development of these tools play also a relevant role in educational activities at the University of Naples as far aircraft design is concerned.

Presentation 1.5 Dieter Scholz Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg), DE Specific Fuel Consumption of Jet Engines – Implications in Aircraft Design and Performance Calculations Basic considerations about an overall efficiency of an aircraft lead to the conclusion that a power-specific fuel consumption (PSFC) has to be constant, whereas a thrust-specific fuel consumption (TSFC) has to be proportional to speed. This however, leads to a contradiction, because the fuel consumption at zero speed cannot be zero. Furthermore, specific fuel consumption is a function of thrust (or drag) which varies with speed. This links SFC not only to engine characteristics, but to the whole aircraft and its flight condition. We understand that (in contrast to tradition) the Breguet range equation for jets could be written with a (constant) power-specific fuel consumption (PSFC). Optimizing for maximum range now leads to a different optimum speed compared to a derivation based on a constant thrust-specific fuel consumption (TSFC). We also understand why flying low and slow (for reduced fuel consumption) does not work as well as expected – even for a newly designed aircraft for which the wing area is not yet fixed.

Presentation 2.6 Oleksiy Chernykh Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA), CN Airworthiness Knowledge Comes into Focus of Chinese Aviation Education Air Transportation is the safest mode of transportation, because it has long been under comprehensive aircraft airworthiness management. The airworthiness chain consists of three main components (a machine, environment, and a man) which all ensure highest levels of safety through well coordinated work. The last (but not the least) component of the airworthiness chain is a human, professional specialist. Once China has started to develop its own aircraft, the need for well educated airworthiness professionals has strongly increased. The College of Civil Aviation of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics offers airworthiness knowledge, which has been delivered by a number of professional teachers: local professors, who continuously advance their knowledge working abroad, and foreign professors invited from overseas universities to strengthen airworthiness education in China. Strong emphasis in teaching has been put on professional English, which opens better opportunities for graduates at Chinese and foreign aviation enterprises, because aircraft airworthiness is a worldwide issue.

Presentation 3.3 Diane Chelangat Uyoga Moi University, KE Aerospace Education in Kenya – The Case of Moi University Learning is the heart of existence and education is the main driver of economic activities in the world. Education cuts across continents, generations and races where it is believed that having a formal education is a gateway to better living. Moi University (Kenya), has taken on a challenge to demystify a myth of “how a small stone when thrown up comes down and a plane that is big do not fall off from the skies”. Aircraft design has not been explored in the African context and aerospace education has captured limited attention, more so in a higher education context. Moi University, a state owned institution situated in the Eastern part of the continent attempts to address the technical and softer issues that are tailored to equip learners with knowledge on aerospace and its dynamics.
