A design method is presented that has been implemented in a software program to investigate the merits of conventional and unconventional transport airplanes. Design and analysis methods are implemented in a design tool capable of creating a conceptual design based on a set of toplevel requirements. In contrast to established design methods,...

Van den Berg, T. (author)
An increase in productivity is required for the European aviation industry to remain competitive in a world with rising competition, shorter development timescales, more complex products and decreasing numbers of technically skilled personnel. Fokker Elmo, a Dutch aircraft electrical wiring harness manufacturer, is facing these challenges. At...

Chan, P.K.M. (author)
One of the main challenges in Multi-disciplinary Design Optimisation (MDO) is the interoperability of heterogeneous simulation tools. Some researches have reported that, due to these interoperability issues, only around 20% of the product development time is spent on analyses and creative design tasks. Clearly, there is a lot to gain, when it...

Reijnders, A.W. (author)
Because the amount of knowledge in the engineering domain nowadays is huge, while being opaque, heterogeneous, distributed and informal at the same time, it is incredibly time-consuming for an engineer to find the knowledge (s)he is looking for and to reuse that knowledge. Furthermore, the amount of knowledge is growing exponentially, while the...

Competitive aircraft box structures are a perfect compromise between weight and price. The conceptual design process of these structures is a typical Multidisciplinary Design and Optimization effort, normally conducted by human engineers. The iterative nature of MDO turns development into a long and costly process. Knowledge-Based Engineering...

Cooper, C.A. (author)
The design of complex systems in today’s aerospace domain requires a balance between the ever-increasing complexity of the supporting technology and the drive to develop those systems in a compressed timeframe. The performance knowledge of a preliminary design must shift backwards in the lifecycle in order to exploit that knowledge when there is...

In order to remain competitive with respect to low-cost overseas markets, domestic moldmakers will have to increase the productivity of their engineers and maintain high quality standard, while dealing with the problem of an aging workforce. To increase the competitiveness of the European automotive industry, the concept of and Integrated Design...

Since the 1960s, the demand for air transportation has doubled every 15 years, resilient to every oil crises and international events. However, the current capability of the air transport management system, the demand of increasingly growing levels of quality, comfort, safety and security, and, above all, an environmental sensitivity as high as...

Schut, E.J. (author)
In order to keep innovating, engineers are working more and more with engineering software, providing them a way to cut away their routine and repetitive activities. Computer aided design and simulation software are for instance considered standard tools in most engineering companies. Today, to solve complex engineering design problems,...

Koning, J.H. (author)
The aviation industry faces a number of challenges: it needs to produce safer, quieter and more efficient aircraft to meet the demands of the airlines and increasingly strict regulations. At the same time, engineers are becoming more scarce because the retirement age of the `baby-boom generation' is approaching. The department of Systems...

Vermeulen, B. (author)
The process of design aircraft systems is becoming more and more complex, due to an increasing amount of requirements. Moreover, the knowledge on how to solve these complex design problems becomes less readily available, because of a decrease in availability of intellectual resources and reduced knowledge transfer opportunities. Aerospace...
