Development of modern aircrafts has become more and more expensive and time consuming. In order to minimize the development cost, an improvement of the conceptual design phase is needed. The desired goal of the project is to enhance the functionality of an in house produced framework conducted at theDepartment of Machine Design, Link¨ping University, consisting of parametric aircraft models used for conceptual design. The former part of the work consists of the construction of geometric aircraft control surfaces such as flaps, aileron, rudder and elevator parametrically in CATIA V5. The next part of the work involves designing and simulating an Inverse dynamic model in Dymola software. An Excel interface has been developed between CATIA and Dymola. Parameters can be varied in the interface as per user specification; these values are sent to CATIA or Dymola and vice versa. The constructed concept model of control surfaces has been tested for different aircraft shapes and layout. An interface is developed between CATIA, Dymola and Tornado. An optimization case is performed to visualize the automation capability of choosing an actuator from a database for the proposed framework, and enhance the early design phases for aircraft conceptual design.
