Hello! I am a brand new Design/Stress Engineer at a large aerospace company. I have been here for 3 months or so and I'm with a great group of people and I have been able to carry several parts through the design and stress process and see my parts go to the floor. After just graduating college this is an amazing feeling. But, I have recently been given an incredibly difficult part to re-design, the Skeg. It involves very complex titanium machining and it is quite a large part. I have been having difficulty finding any good knowledge on design techniques for milling besides just the basics. I know about milling, I'm quite familiar with an old Bridgeport and a 3 axis Haas we had at school, however I am designing parts for an incredibly sophisticated machine shop. I have had some guidance from them on the part, but they suggested that some of the contours on the part right now are very inefficient to machine. I have no idea how to design a part that truly capitalizes on the benefits of the machines that we have, and I cannot find any company resources that are useful for this either. Does anyone know of any book/design manuals that could help me out? Thankyou very much. Also, if anyone has any emergency landing/ belly landing/ sliding reports those are also very interesting to look at.
