Benchmarks in Multidisciplinary Optimization and Design for Affordable Military Vehicles
The task group objectives were to develop documentation standards for multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) bench marks and to apply those standards to a number of MDO problems to forma repository to facilitate future research. The driving principal behind the standards was to develop standards that would provide a researcher the necessary information to understand and implement the vehicle optimization performed in a benchmark problem. Specifically, the goals of the standards were to: Describe pertinent aspects of MDO problem; Contain enough information to duplicate MDO results; and Document the technical and financial improvement by using MDO in design relative to a traditional design process. The documentation standards were developed and refined over the course of the AVT-237 effort, edited and approved by the entire AVT-237 team, and used to document several MDO benchmark problems. Science Connect was used as a repository for corresponding computer models, files, supporting documents, etc., to provide future researchers with the information necessary to reproduce the benchmark results.
