Harness 3D routing in aircraft Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS) design is very complex because of both the intrinsic complexity of EWIS and the increasing number of design constraints. The complexity hinders the improvement of the design efficiency and makes the design error prone. Considering that many harness components are...

Wire harness design is an increasingly complex task. Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) and optimization techniques can be used to support designers in handling this complexity. The wire harness design process can be divided in three main parts, namely electrical design, configuration design and geometrical routing. This paper describes the...

This paper will demonstrate the potential of the Class-Shape-Refinement-Transformation (CSRT) method for aerodynamically optimizing three-dimensional surfaces. The CSRT method was coupled to an in-house Euler solver and this combination was used in an optimization framework to optimize the ONERA M6 wing in transonic conditions. The gradients of...

Based on the use of dedicated software tools, Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) techniques are able to capture and reuse engineering product and process knowledge to reduce time and cost during product development. In this paper a conceptual design of an automatic wire harness routing application is proposed, based on KBE. As the core of this...

Next generations of civil transport aircraft will need to be evaluated not only against their behaviour as an aircraft system but also as a part of the larger air transport system. In addition to this are the sustainability issues related to for instance noise and emissions, represented by environmental impact. Both issues mandate the...

In order to asess the merit of novel high-lift structural concepts to the design of contemporary and future transport aircraft, a highly automated design routine is elaborated. The structure, purpose and evolution of this design routine is set-out with the use of Knowledge-Based Engineering techniques. As a case-study, the automated design of...

Environmental issues play an increasingly important role in aviation, affecting the desirability of novel technologies directly. The desirability of a certain technology with respect to environmental issues is determined by the system of systems level impact instead of the often used system level impact. Changing this perspective introduces...

The blended wing body aircraft is one of the promising contenders for the next generation large transport aircraft. This aircraft is particularly suitable for the use of boundary layer ingestion engines. Results published in literature suggest that it might be beneficial to have a large number of these engines (distributed propulsion). A...

This paper presents a methodology for the design of the primary flight control surfaces, in terms of size, number and location, for fixed wing aircraft (conventional or unconventional). As test case, the methodology is applied to a 300 passenger variant of the Prandtl Plane. This box wing aircraft is deemed to have low induced drag compared to...

The study presents a multilevel optimization methodology for the preliminary structural design of transportation aircraft wings. A global level is defined by taking into account the primary wing structural components (i.e., ribs, spars and skin) which are explicitly modeled by shell layered finite elements. Wing substructures such as stringers...
