Integrated Aircraft Design Network

Raghu Chaitanya.M.V, Ingo Staack & Petter Krus
Aim: XML based multidisciplinary tool integration in a conceptual aircraft design framework. Instead of a "One-tool” a "One-database” approach. Design Automation for fast realization of the concept. To support Conceptual to Preliminary Aircraft design. Conclusions: Multidisciplinary conceptual aircraft design analysis based on a central parametric XML database database. This database -containing all project related data- is intended to grow simultaneously with the refined specification of the airplane. The unified geometry makes meshing easier and serves for no aperture for high fidelity CFD.

Openvsp-Connect - Visualize Your Aircraft Sizing Results With Nasa'S Vehicle Sketch Pad

Dieter Scholz & Tahir Sousa
A 3D visualization is missing for many aircraft preliminary sizing tools. NASA’s Open Vehicle Sketch Pad (OpenVSP) is easy to use, but lacks an interface to input consistent aircraft data. Such an interface has been programmed and is called OpenVSP-Connect. Aircraft are sketched from about 50 parameters. If these are not known to the user, the interface calculates them as good as possible based on simple equations from aircraft design or statistics. Taken this to the extreme, a decent looking aircraft...

Personal Jet - A Student Project

C Jouannet, P Berry, D Melin & D. Lundström
The presented work considers designing, building and flight test of a demonstrator of a personal jet aircraft realized as a student project. The goal is to allow student to participate in an aircraft project from design to flight test in order to acquire aircraft design knowledge from theoretical and practical means. A first theoretical part consists of creating a sizing program for studying different concepts. Then the gathered knowledge will result in the realization of a flying demonstrator. This was realized during a student project over a...

Open Access Publishing In Aerospace – Opportunities And Pitfalls

Dieter Scholz
The first Open Access (OA) peer reviewed online journals in aerospace were all estab-lished after 2007. Still today more and more OA aerospace journals get started. Many publishers are located in less developed countries. The benefits of OA publishing are undisputed in the academic community, but there is disagreement if the new publishers can work to required standards. The current situation is evaluated based on an Internet review. OA journals in aerospace are listed with...

Collaborative Understanding Of Disciplinary Correlations Using A Low-Fidelity Physics Based Aerospace Toolkit

Erwin Moerland, Richard-Gregor Becker & Björn Nagel
Covering all relevant physical effects and mutual influences during aircraft preliminary design at a sufficient level of fidelity necessitates simultaneous consideration of a large number of disciplines. This requires an approach in which teams of engineers apply their analysis tools and knowledge to collaboratively approach design challenges. In the current work, recent technical advancements of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in data and workflow management are utilized for establishing a toolbox containing elementary disciplinary analysis modules. This toolbox is focussed on providing fast overall aircraft design capabilities. The incorporated empirical...

Preliminary Design For Flexible Aircraft In A Collaborative Environment

Pier Davide Ciampa, Björn Nagel, Darwin Rajpal & Gianfranco La Rocca
The work presents a collaborative design approach, developed to account for the structure flexibility effects in the pre-design stages of generic aircraft configurations. A streamlined design process is developed between DLR and TU Delft, to support the transition from an initial aircraft conceptual solution, to physics based simulations. The TU Delft DEE initiator is the conceptual tool providing the initial design, which is used to instantiate further analysis tool. An Aeroelastic Engine module is responsible for the abstraction of the aircraft structural properties, and the generation...

Static Directional Stability And Control Of Transport Aircraft

Ed Obert
An analysis is described of side-force and yawing-moment-in-sideslip of conventional transport aircraft based on available wind tunnel and full-size aircraft data. After a chapter on general design requirements the analysis is divided in a part which describes the tail-off characteristics and a part which describes the contribution of the tail surfaces to side-force and yawing-moment-due-to-sideslip. Particular attention is paid to the drfferent contributions to the sidewash as expenenced by the tail surfaces. Also rudder characteristics...

Integrated Aircraft Design Network

Raghu Chaitanya. M. V, Ingo Staack & Petter Krus
This paper describes the XML based multidisciplinary tool integration in a conceptual aircraft design framework, developed by the Division of Fluid and Mechatronic Systems (FluMeS), Linköping University. Based on a parametric data definition in XML, this approach allows for a full 3D CAD integration. The one-database approach, also conducted by many research organizations, enables the flexible and efficient integration of the different multidisciplinary processes during the whole conceptual design phase. This  central database approach with a detailed explanation of the developed geometry description and the data processing, focusing...
