In 2009-2010, Boeing conducted the first phase of a Subsonic Ultra-Green Aircraft Research (SUGAR) study (1) in response to a NASA solicitation. In this study, Boeing identified and analyzed advanced concepts and technologies for aircraft that would fly in the 2030-2035 timeframe. Large possible improvements in fuel consumption, emissions, and noise were identified and roadmaps developed for key technologies. In this first phase of study, the Transonic Truss-Braced Wing (TTBW) vehicle concept… 

Computational Simulations of a Mach 0.745 \\Transonic Truss-Braced Wing Design

An investigation revealed that the trailing edge of the experimental model was rounded in comparison to the CAD model, due to manufacturing tolerances, which had not been accounted for in the initial simulations of the experiment.
