Online Data-Driven Prediction of Spatio-Temporal System Behavior Using High-Fidelity Simulations and Sparse Sensor Measurements
A generic online data-driven approach for the prediction of spatio-temporal behavior of dynamical systems using their simulation data combined with sparse, noisy sensors measurement data and has a prediction accuracy that is relatively robust to the sensors’ locations.
Wing Thickness Optimization for Box Wing Aircraft
In the interest of improving aircraft performance, studies have highlighted the benefits of Box wing configurations over conventional cantilever aircraft configuration. Generally, the greater an
Wing area optimization for box wing aircraft
The optimization of the wing area of a medium range box wing aircraft was carried out in this study using a multidisciplinary conceptual design/optimization approach based on gradient search
Trim Analysis of Box Wing Aircraft
Computational studies at the conceptual design level were performed to investigate the longitudinal trim of a Box wing aircraft. The analysis was intended to show the points in the envelope at which
