VizCraft: A Problem Solving Environment for Configuration Design of High Speed Civil Transport
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1999-09-01), TR-99-02
We describe a problem solving environment (PSE) named VizCraft that aids aircraft designers during the conceptual design stage. At this stage,an aircraft design is defined by a vector of 10-30 parameters. The goal is to ...
HSCT Configuration Design Space Exploration Using Aerodynamic Response Surface Approximations
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1999-03-01), TR-99-01
A method has been developed to generate and use polynomial approximations to the range and cruise drag components in a highly constrained, multidisciplinary design optimization of a High Speed Civil Transport configuration. ...
