This paper presents a new multi-objective optimization formulation for the design and allocation of optimal aircraft departure routes. In the considered problem – besides two conventional objectives based on cumulative noise criteria and fuel burn – a new objective considering the flight frequency is introduced. Moreover, to take advantage of...

The multi-objective evolutionary algorithm based on decomposition (MOEA/D) has been recognized as a promising method for solving multi-objective optimization problems (MOPs), receiving a lot of attention from researchers in recent years. However, its performance in handling MOPs with complicated Pareto fronts (PFs) is still limited,...

Recently, a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm based on decomposition (MOEA/D) has emerged as a potential method for solving multi-objective optimization problems (MOPs) and attracted much attention from researchers. In MOEA/D, the MOPs are decomposed into a number of scalar optimization sub-problems, and these sub-problems are optimized...

This paper discusses the development of a software suite that aims to optimize helicopter trajectories with respect to the noise impact on the ground. The software suite has been developed around an advanced gradient-based optimization algorithm based on optimal control theory. The helicopter trajectories are modeled using an eight-degree-of...

In this paper a tool is developed that optimizes the trajectories of multiple airliners that seek to join in formation to minimize overall fuel consumption or direct operating cost. The developed optimization framework relies on optimal control theory to solve the multiple-phase optimization problem associated to flight formation assembly. A...

In an effort to allow to increase the number of aircraft and airport operations while mitigating their negative impacts (e.g., noise and pollutant emission) on near-airport communities, the optimal design of new departure routes with less noise and fuel consumption becomes more important. In this paper, a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm...

In this study, a genetic optimization algorithm is applied to the design of environmentally friendly aircraft departure trajectories. The environmental optimization has been primarily focused on noise abatement and local NOx emissions, whilst taking fuel burn into account as an economical criterion. In support of this study, a novel...

This paper presents a sound synthesis approach that allows investigating the noise annoyance of rotorcraft in relation to the source components and flight path. The sound synthesis is based on a source-transfer-receiver model, describing the noise emission and directivity of the sources and their propagation towards the receiver point on the...

This paper presents preliminary results from an ongoing research effort towards the development of a multi-event trajectory optimization methodology that allows to synthesize RNAV approach routes that minimize a cumulative measure of noise, taking into account the total noise effect aggregated for all inbound flight movements taking place within...
