Special Issue Aircraft Design

The Continuous Open Access Special Issue "Aircraft Design" in the Journal "Aerospace" at MDPI

Affiliated to the CEAS Technical Committee Aircraft Design (TCAD). Aerospace (ISSN 2226-4310) – An Open Access Journal with Impact Factor 2.6.

logo MDPI Usually special issues of a journal are introduced for "hot topics" and are titled as such. The idea is here, to use the subset "Special Issue" of the journal "Aerospace" at MDPI for a specialized scientific domain – Aircraft Design.

Closing Date: The current special issue (SI-6/2024) has a closing date of 31 December 2024.

Keywords: aircraft, design, OAD, configuration, requirements, payload, range, certification, safety, constraints, objectives, synthesis, optimization, aerodynamics, drag, high-lift, structure, mass, performance, stability, control, aeroelasticity, engine, systems, operating costs, DOC, passenger, cabin, ticket, price, environment, profit, asset, wing, fuselage, tail, undercarriage, landing gear, engine, systems.

Paper Type and Content: In addition to original research articles also review papers, letters or communications, technical reports, and extended version of conference papers are accepted. An interest exists also in aircraft design education.

High Visibility: Papers will be visible Open Access at the journal "Aerospace" and also alongside the Special Issue "Aircraft Design" as soon as they are ready. The journal "Aerospace" is covered by many databases and archives including Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics) and Scopus (Elsevier).

Rapid Publication: Manuscripts at the journal "Aerospace" are peer-reviewed and a first decision provided to authors approximately 23 days after submission; acceptance to publication is undertaken in 4 days. Once accepted, the manuscripts undergo professional copy-editing, proofreading by the authors, final corrections, and publication on the www.mdpi.com website.

Tradition: Following the successful initial Special Issue Aircraft Design (SI-1/2017), the SI was relaunched with Aircraft Design (SI-2/2020) and continued from Aircraft Design (SI-3/2021) to Aircraft Design (SI-5/2023). This is now the sixth SI named Aircraft Design (SI-6/2024). The Special Issues "Aircraft Design" continue the tradition of the Journal Aircraft Design (ISSN: 1369-8869), which Prof. Egbert Torenbeek had started together with Prof. Dr. Jan Roskam as Editors at Elsevier in 1998. The subscription-based publishing model proved inadequate to serve the rather small aircraft design community. For this reason, the Elsevier title had to be discontinued in 2002. This pitfall is avoided with the Open Access publishing model used by MDPI for all its journals including this Special Issue.

Prof. em. Egbert Torenbeek served as Honorary Guest Editor for this Special Issue "Aircraft Design" from 2020 to 2022.

Article Processing Charges (APC) are given here. Reductions may be possible. Reviewers who provide timely, thorough peer-review reports receive vouchers entitling them to an additional discount on the APC of their next publication. This means APC can be reduced to a bearable amount, which is usually acceptable to the author's institution.
