Exploring Parametric CAD-models in Aircraft Conceptual Design
2008 (English)In: 49th AIAA/ASME/ASCE/AHS/ASC Structures, Structural Dynamics, and Materials Conference, 2008, Reston, VA, USA: American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2008Conference paper (Other academic)
The ever fast growing information technology is enabling the re-definition of early stages of aircraft design which have been restricted mostly by statistical and empirical approaches because of lengthy and costly simulation times. This paper will describe a methodology based on parametric and generic CAD modeling methods which will save time when performing repetitive tasks automatically. Furthermore, it enables greater comprehension by giving a holistic view of the aircraft systems because of the proposed multidisciplinary and modular framework. The framework involves a centralized easy to use interface which is coupled to a series of analyses tools. The proposed methods have been applied in student projects of the course -Aircraft Conceptual Design- from Linköping University where it has shown great promises.
