The Delft University of Technology is developing an MDO tool for the conceptual design of transport aircraft. However, the current program is not able to investigate the influence of the undercarriage design on the weight, drag and geometry of transport aircraft. This research proposes a new design method for the undercarriage, for which a new...

The use of advancements in computing technology has enabled designers to perform more thorough and more detailed design studies. Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) architectures provide users with guidelines on how to structure their MDO problem, including the linking of disciplines and how to perform the optimization. However, complex...

At present, on the aviation market a need exists for lighter and more efficient aircraft than the ones dominating the airspace today. Beside the reduction in operating costs and air pollutants of these new generation aircraft, this reduction in fuel use can result in several advantages with respect to the performance of the aircraft like...

An opportunity was identified to improve the traditional landing gear design process. Especially in the conceptual design phase, lots of man-hours are consumed by making the same calculations over and over again, for different concepts. Often, an existing gear is therefore used as initial starting point, to simplify the design process. This...

Multidisciplinary design optimizations have shown great benefits for aerospace applications in the past. Especially in the last decades with the advent of high speed computing. Still computational time limits the desire for models with high level of fidelity cannot be always fulfilled. As a conse- quence, fidelity is often sacrificed in order to...

Traditionally, the aircraft design process is divided into three phases: conceptual, preliminary and detailed design. In each subsequent phase, the fidelity of the analysis tools increases and more and more details of the design geometry are frozen. In each phase a number of design variants is generated, fully analyzing them with the tools...
