An Improved Procedure for Prediction of Drag Polars of a Joined Wing Concept Using Physics-Based Response Surface Methodology
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001-09)
Creation and utilization of accurate drag polars is essential in the aircraft sizing and synthesis process. Existing sizing and synthesis codes are based on historical data and cannot capture the aerodynamics of a ...
Robust Structural Design for Active Aeroelastic Wing with Aerodynamic Uncertainties
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000-04)
A multidisciplinary design study for Active Aeroelastic Wing technology considering the uncertainty in maneuver loads estimated by linear aerodynamic theory is presented. The study makes use of a design of experiments/response ...
Formulation of an IPPD Methodology for the Design of a Supersonic Business Jet
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996-10)
The growth of international markets as well as business partnerships between U.S. and Asian-based firms has lead to an increased interest in an economically viable business jet capable of supersonic cruise and trans-Pacific ...
System Synthesis in Preliminary Aircraft Design Using Statistical Methods
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996-09)
This paper documents an approach to conceptual and early preliminary aircraft design in which system synthesis is achieved using statistical methods, specifically Design of Experiments (DOE) and Response Surface Methodology ...
An Improved Process for the Generation of Drag Polars for Use in Conceptual/Preliminary Design
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999-10)
One of the most essential contributors in the aircraft sizing and synthesis process is the creation and utilization of accurate drag polars. An improved general procedure to generate drag polars for conceptual and preliminary ...
A Screening Method for Customizing Designs Around Non-Convergent Regions of Design Spaces
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2002-09)
In engineering design, Response Surface Methodology is often used to explore a design space and to generate a meta-model of the space. Designs of Experiments are used in this process to obtain the most behavioral information ...
