Multidisciplinary Optimization of Aircraft Vehicle System for Conceptual Analysis
2013 (English)In: , Aerospace Research Central, ARC , 2013, 1-9 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
An aircraft is a multifaceted product which requires cooperation between different engineering domains. Therefore, design of an aircraft is essentially a multidisciplinary activity with necessity of integrating dierent design tools to get an optimized product. At Linkoping University, a design framework is being developed to assist in the evaluation and optimization of various aircraft vehicle system architectures with the help of integrating a geometric, aerodynamic and dynamic models early in the conceptual design phase. This framework helps to identify a preliminary system concept for an energy optimized aircraft architecture with the focus on more electrical aircraft. As a case study the performance and geometrical aspects of an EMA (Electromechanical actuator) are evaluated and optimized.
