The Flying-V aircraft concept promises better fuel-burn performance over conventional tube-and-wing configurations, integrating the passenger cabin and cargo volume into the lifting surface. However, the wing-fuselage and cockpit windows of the Flying-V are exposed to the flight direction, posing a new challenge to the design and...

The Flying V, a concept aircraft configuration, has been proposed by Airbus and TU Berlin. The initial indications of potential improvements in performance over conventional aircraft gave rise to a continuation of the research. For this, the mass characteristics of the configuration must be explored. <br/><br/>A primary structure concept is...

Blended wing body aircraft represent a paradigm shift in jet transport aircraft design. Stepping away from the conventional tube-and-wing philosophy, they promise benefits over existing or future conventional aircraft. The most significant challenge with the concept is the increased coupling between aircraft design disciplines that has...

Air traffic is important to our society and guarantees mobility especially for long distances. Air traffic is also contributing to climate warming via emissions of CO2 and various non-CO2 effects, such as contrail-cirrus or increase in ozone concentrations. Here we investigate the climate impact of a future aircraft design, a multi fuel blended...

Concern about the environmental footprint of aviation has re-sparked the interest in unconventional configurations, such as the blended wing body aircraft, BWB. While most research studies recognize the potential of the hybrid-body, they also list a number of challenges. Amongst these challenges is the need for adequate lateral-directional...

The application of thrust vectoring on civil transport aircraft has only been studied by a few individuals. Quantified investigations need to be carried out to search for the potential benefits of the application of thrust vectoring control on a civil transport aircraft. Blended Wing Body configuration is a novel aircraft concept. Due to the...

Considering the fact that all large commercial aircraft have not changed significantly in their tube–and–wing shape during the past few decades, one would suggest that a completely different configuration is necessary to facilitate a new leap forward in aircraft performance. The blended–wing–body is potentially such an alternative configuration....

Boundary Layer Ingestion (BLI) is a concept in which the fuselage boundary layer is ingested by the engine to produce benefits like improved fuel efficiency, reduction of ram drag and lower structural weight of the configuration. Blended Wing Body (BWB) concept has been researched on and studied in various forms over the years as an efficient...

This paper presents a semi-analytical method for the weight estimation of fuselages with an oval cross-section, applied to blended wing body aircraft. The weight estimation of the fuselage primary structure is based on a structural analysis of two-dimensional crosssections and it is completed by a set of empirical relations for the weight...

There are many applications where volume needs to be pressurised within a geometrical space for which conventional pressure vessels do not provide suitable solutions. Applications are for example found in pressure cabins for Blended Wing Body Aircraft and conformable pressure vessels for an incompressible medium that has to be stored in a...

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...

Blended Wing Body (BWB) Aircraft has aroused a considerable interest as a potential candidate for future large subsonic transport air-vehicles. In this paper, we present the results of one and multi-point multi-constrained optimization of a BWB configuration for minimum total drag. The optimization technique is based on Genetic Algorithms and is...
