Abstract [en]

The SimSAC project has developed the design software CEASIOM, a framework tool that integrates discipline-specific tools like: CAD & grid generation, CFD, stability & control analysis etc., all for the purpose of aircraft conceptual design. Significant features developed and integrated in CEASIOM are geometry, aerodynamics, flight dynamics and aeroelasticity modules. The design, simulate and evaluate (DSE) exercise demonstrates how the software works. It begins with a design specification and uses conventional design methods to prescribe a baseline configuration. Then CEASIOM improves upon this baseline by analyzing its flying and handling qualities. This paper reports on the DSE case Transonic cruiser TCR from re-design of the baseline configuration to wind-tunnel model construction and testing, to improving its flying qualities by augmented-stability techniques. The wind-tunnel testing on the model verifies the final design obtained with CEASIOM. This DSE exercise demonstrates how CEASIOM is becoming a useful tool for aircraft conceptual design.
