In the aerospace industry, demanding time constraints make it practically impossible to fully explore the design space of aircraft movable surfaces. The hinges, located at the interface of the movable surface, require a time-consuming analysis. This thesis presents a methodology enabling the near instantaneous selection of an optimal hinge. An...

In the last ten years, the airlines are demanding lower aircraft prices and fuel consumption. Aircraft manufacturers as well as component and sub-assembly manufacturers are adapting to this situation by optimizing existing aircraft configurations. Traditional design processes, due to their inability to capture multidisciplinarity at the early...

With improvements in aviation technology, design requirements to be full-filled have also increased exponentially. This in turn influences the complexity of design process, along with the time and effort required for it. The problem, for this research, has been set up with respect to challenges faced at Fokker Aerostructures, during in-proposal...

Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO) promises major advances in aircraft design. However, judging from todays aircraft, MDAO is clearly not fully embraced by the industry yet. This is due to technical difficulties (coupling incompatible tools) and non-technical barriers (intellectual property).

Recent research, such...

Reducing turnaround time and increasing passenger comfort are requirements that should be tackled for medium range flights. Reducing turnaround time could be achieved by increasing the fuselage aisle width and increasing passenger comfort by increasing the space allocated to carry-on luggage. Because research is now looking at novel aircraft...

As the complexity of high-tech systems continuously increases, engineers look for possibilities to reduce time and cost of the development of these systems. Architecture-based design enables a front-loaded design process with knowledge reuse. By enabling the automatic synthesis of simulation models, different configurations of an architecture...

Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) frameworks, capable of performing overall aircraft design studies become too complex to be comprehended by a single team of experts. Therefore, there is an increasing need to develop distributed analysis frameworks in which both tools and experts are integrated in a single network. This poses great...
