During the early design stages of airframe components, many possible design architectures and production methods need to be traded to find the best configuration. Evaluating different production methods can be challenging as different production methods put different requirements on the product to be designed. This paper presents a new...

Including production considerations in the early design stages of aircraft structures is challenging. Production information is mostly known by experts and rarely formally documented such that it can be effectively used during the design process. Producibility is mostly considered after completing the design, resulting in increased cost and...

During the aircraft conceptual design phase, many different design options need to be explored and compared in a short time frame. To speed up this process, efforts have been made in the past decades to digitalize parts of the design process, with a focus on the automation of the repetitive and non-creative tasks inherent to the iterative design...

This paper compares optimum control surface layouts designed and sized to obtain the same Flying Qualities (FQs) performance with different Control Allocation (CA) methods, and proposes novel layouts for staggered box-wing aircraft aimed at transonic commercial flight. Box-wings allow the installation of redundant control surfaces for which no...

This article proposes a novel approach to support Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) application development based on Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). In this methodology, the related knowledge is captured in a well-structured Systems Modeling Language (SysML) model, instead of (static) documents. The knowledge model is then automatically...

This paper discusses the approach for architecture design space optimization of aeronautical systems investigated in the DEFAINE project. In system architecture optimization problems, hierarchical relations between design variables may exist. This means that the quantity and type of some variables are dependent on the value of other variables....

According to a study performed by the Project Management Institute, around 47% of unsuccessful projects do not meet their goals and objectives due to poor requirements management. Taking requirements into account during the aircraft design process and ensuring requirement compliance during all design phases is important to obtain good and...

After almost three decades of evolution, it is not yet possible to apply MDO in collaborative projects within large, heterogeneous and distributed teams of experts, whilst nowadays necessary for the development of any complex product. The H2020 project AGILE took the challenge of devising a novel paradigm to swiftly set up and deploy large...

Routing design of aircraft Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS) is time-consuming and error-prone. A solution, which automatically routes the EWIS inside the aircraft Digital MockUp (DMU), has been proposed and presented in the previous publications. The DMU, however, includes over-detailed features, which hardly influence the...

This paper proposes a novel methodology and its software implementation, called KADMOS (Knowledge- and graph-based Agile Design for Multidisciplinary Optimization System), to increase the agility of design teams in collaborative Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO). Agility here refers to the ease and flexibility to...

Sub-scaled Physical Models (SPM) are often employed in wind-tunnel tests or in free-flight tests (physical tests) to predict flight behavior of aircraft Full-scale Design (FD). However, a quality prediction of both the static and dynamic behavior is to date an open challenge. In this research, a methodology for designing SPMs is proposed for...

Sub-scale Flight Testing (SFT) is potentially useful in predicting aircraft flight behaviour, especially in the case of unconventional designs for which legacy information is unavailable and wind tunnel tests are unable to predict aircraft dynamics. A necessary condition for SFT is the design of properly scaled models. However, even in case of...

A new system is presented that enables the visualization of large multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) problems and their solution strategy. It was developed within the scope of the European project AGILE. In AGILE, collaborative MDO is performed in large, heterogeneous teams of experts by solving MDO problems using a collection of...

This paper proposes a new format to store and exchange multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) systems. Here, the generic term MDO system refers to the set of disciplinary tools, their exchanged data and process connections that, all together, define an MDO computational setup. In the process leading to the formal specification of such a...
