Abstract:

Computerized engineering architectures promise to significantly improve the process for designing complex systems. This paper investigates the application of the Adaptive Modeling Language to the aircraft design process. Models were developed to perform a limited activity-based cost vs. structural performance trade study on wing box. These disciplines were chosen because cost is becoming increasingly important in todays defense environment and it is not handled as systematically as the physics-based analyses by conventional aircraft design processes. Besides demonstrating the feasibility of combining diverse disciplines in a single engineering environment, this paper documents the time savings that can be realized by automating some repetitive design tasks.
