RAPID – Robust Aircraft Parametric Interactive Design: A Knowledge Based Aircraft Conceptual Design Tool
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of the 4th CEAS Conference in Linköping 2013: 4:th CEAS conference, 2013 / [ed] Tomas Melin, Petter Krus, Emil Vinterhav and Knut Övrebo, Linköping, 2013, 255-262 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Conceptual design is the early stage of theaircraft design process where results areneeded faster both analytically and visually sothat the design can be modified or changed atthe earliest stages. Although there is nonecessity for a CAD model from the verybeginning of the design process it can be anadded advantage to have the model, to get theimpression and appearance.Tango and RAPID are knowledge basedaircraft conceptual design applications beingdeveloped in Matlab and CATIA respectively.The user can work in parallel with bothprograms and exchange the data between themvia XML. This paper describes the knowledgebased design automated methodology of RAPIDand its application in the courses “Aircraftconceptual design” and “Aircraft projectcourse” at Linköping University. A multifaceteduser interface is developed to assist in the wholedesign processes.
