Parametric Modeling of Aircraft Fuel Systems integration in RAPID
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
This work presents knowledge-based parametricdefinition of aircraft fuel systems, oriented to itsuse in conceptual design and integrated into theRAPID design tool. Fuel systems appear earlyin the design process as they are involved in severalfirst estimations. For instance, fuel weight isa significant part of take-off weight and decisivein aircraft sizing and range estimations. Therefore,including fuel systems earlier in the designprocess creates an opportunity to optimize it andobtain better solutions.
