Abstract:

This report reviews the impact of the modern revolution in computing hardware in aerospace design. Five papers identify several areas of potential application relevent to aeronautical design ranging from applications of artificial intelligence to the use of computer power for alleviating management control problems. The studies indicate that the radical application of large scale computing can have a major impact on the future use of such varied aspects as automated design techniques, the development of extremely user friendly programs, the preservation of knowledge and advanced monitoring procedures. Partial contents Modern trends in aircraft structural design The effective use of computing power in structural analysis Computer technology and engineering-past, present, and 1995 Needs of the USAF Air Logistics Center for large scale structural analyses and supporting data Impact of computer advances on future finite element computations.
