Abstract:

This memorandum demonstrates a methodology for an automated design process. The design process was developed in the Adaptive Modeling Language AML. This effort concentrates on developing a system for linking conceptual level wing geometric parameters to a preliminary level finite element model. This environment allows for rapid changes in the geometric parameters of the wing planform e.g., wing sweep, span, chord length, etc. as well as the capability for updating internal substructure i.e., number and placement of ribs, spars and stiffeners in an integrated environment. In this effort, a fully associative geometric design model developed in AML is coupled with an aerospace structural optimization code, ASTROS.
