A process to efficiently design composite wing boxes is presented. It uses analytical and semi-empirical equations for failure modes such as material strength, plate buckling, stiffener column buckling and stiffener flange or web crippling. Laminate layups for the different components are selected in accordance with basic engineering rules...

Aircraft mass is a crucial piece of information for studies on aircraft performance, trajectory prediction, and many other topics of aircraft traffic management. However, It is a common challenge for researchers, as well as air traffic control, to access this proprietary information. Previously, several studies have proposed methods to estimate...

Aircraft mass is a crucial piece of information for studies on aircraft performance, trajectory prediction, and many other ATM topics. However, it is a common challenge for researchers who have no access to this proprietary information. Previously, several studies have proposed methods to estimates aircraft weight, most of which are focused on...

A new methodology has been developed that integrates the preliminary wing design with trailing edge high-lift systems and accounts for three-dimensional flap kinematics. The high-lift system in the developed application includes the kinematic synthesis of four common mechanisms (dropped-hinge, four-bar, link-track and hooked-track) and a...

Aircraft mass is an important parameter in many ways, either to build aircraft performance models, to predict flight trajectories, or to simulate air traffic. Mass data is usually considered as sensitive information for airlines and is, therefore, not disclosed to researchers publicly. In this paper, we use two methods to infer the mass of an...

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...

Precise orbit determination, and satellite-geodetic applications such as gravity field modelling or satellite altimetry, rely on different observation types and groups that have to be processed in a common parameter estimation scheme. Naturally, the choice of the relative weights for these data sets as well as for added prior information is of...
