Physics-Based Conceptual Design Tools, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

In the current proposal, M4 Engineering will develop and evaluate the feasibility of an innovative concept aimed at enhancing previously developed databases with physics-based weight and load estimation relationships (via stochastic response surfaces) for unconventional (and conventional!) conceptual wing and fuselage designs. The main goal for this effort will be to develop a software tool capable of generating weight and load responses for unconventional designs from physics-based simulations. In an effort to minimize risk and expedite development, the proposed software tool will utilize two previously developed in-house robust toolsets for rapidly generating finite element models and constructing stochastic response surfaces.
