An Eclipse-based Environment for Aircraft Design

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

Designing an aircraft is a complex task. Many experts are needed. Each of them contributes its knowledge about a specific domain to the overall design process (e.g., about engines, wings, and fuselages). The different domains have strong dependencies among each other. For example, an increase of the fuselage volume can lead to an increase of its mass. To keep the range of the aircraft, the engine’s power and thus, often its mass must be increased as well. In turn the designated wings must be re-designed to resist the engines.
