Within the context of multi-disciplinary aircraft analysis and design, a new approach has been formulated and described which allows for the rapid technical feasibility and economic viability assessment of multiattribute, multi-constrained designs. The approach, referred to here as Virtual Stochastic Life Cycle Design, facilitates the multi-disciplinary(More)
The complex, multidisciplinary nature of aerospace design problems, as well as the requirement to examine life-cycle characteristics, have exposed a need to model and manage uncertainty. In this paper, a formal approach for modeling uncertainty in such design problems is presented. The approach includes uncertainties associated with mathematical models,(More)
This paper documents an approach to conceptual and early preliminary aircraft design in which system synthesis is achieved using statistical methods, specifically Design of Experiments (DOE) and Response Surface Methodology (RSM). These methods are employed in order to more efficiently search the design space for optimum configurations. In particular, a(More)
