Conceptual Design of UAV Airframes Using a Generic Geometry Service

  title={Conceptual Design of UAV Airframes Using a Generic Geometry Service},
  author={Andras Sobester and Andy J. Keane and James Scanlan and Neil W. Bressloff},
With the increased freedom in layout selection possible when designing an Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) concept (compared, for example, to the relatively constrained and mature world of commercial airliner design), comes the significant challenge of building a geometry engine that will provide the variety of airframe models demanded by the highly global nature of the design search. In order to enable multidisciplinary trade-off studies, both an external surface and an internal structure are… CONTINUE READING
