A Framework for Aerodynamic and Structural Optimization in Conceptual Design
2007 (English)In: 25th AIAA Applied Aerodynamics Conference, 25-28 June, Miami, FL, USA, AIAA , 2007, 4061- p.Conference paper (Other academic)
Aircraft design is an inherently multidisciplinary activity that requires different models and tools for various aspects of the design. At Linköping University a novel design framework is being developed to support the initial conceptual design phase of a new aircraft. In this work main attention has been paid to wing design, with respect to aerodynamic efficiency and loads, and to structural analysis. By linking together various modules via a user-friendly interface based on a spreadsheet, the framework allows multidisciplinary analysis and optimizations to be carried out. This paper will present the framework, give an overview of its development status and give an indication on the future work.
