Balancing Uncertainties in Aircraft System Simulation Models
2009 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
In aircraft development, it is crucial to understand and evaluate behaviour, performance, safety and other aspects of the subsystems before and after they are physically available for testing. Simulation models are used to gain knowledge in order to make decisions at all development stages.
This paper focuses on how to balance different kinds of uncertainties in aircraft subsystem simulation models. It is important that the methods of assessing uncertainties are implementable in the modelling and simulation process to achieve efficient system development. In this paper we report on experience gained from a local sensitivity analysis conducted on a realistic industrial example in the form of a simulation model of the fuel system in an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
