Development of a Flight Simulator for Conceptual Aircraft Design and Sizing

À propos de cet article


This article describes the development of a flight simulator module within the ADEMAO aircraft design framework to investigate the effects of novel airframe and propulsion technologies on new generations of aircraft. Methods used to develop and integrate the fight simulator into the overall design framework are described. The simulator is validated based on existing data from the Convair CV-880M and is then used to analyze an example case of a conceptual medium-range aircraft with advanced airframe technologies designed in the Sustainable and Energy-Efficient Aviation research cluster at the Institute of Aircraft Design and Lightweight Structures at the Technische Universität Braunschweig. Results show the deficiencies of the medium-range aircraft in short-period pitch and Dutch roll performance, and recommendations for modifications to the conceptual medium-range aircraft are drafted.
