Multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) based on high- and multi-fidelity methods have been intensively investigated during the last decades in academia and government research labs, and were shown to be promising tools for aircraft design. However, the perception exists that only limited transfer of formal MDO techniques into daily design work of aircraft manufacturers has been achieved until today.
At DLR, IRT Saint Exupéry and ONERA, we explore, implement and test innovative ideas and methods to practical MDO, based, in particular, on high-fidelity methods. With this experience and ambition at hand, we aim at bringing together practitioners from research and industry to discuss the bottlenecks and barriers of MDO use for airframe design, so that future solutions can be designed with these issues in mind.
This European workshop is the first of a planned workshop series organized by DLR, IRT Saint Exupéry and ONERA. The ambition is to establish a European MDO community to enhance collaboration on the subject.
Targets of the 1st workshop:
Format of the 1 st workshop:
Day 1: MDO activities – overview and roadmaps
Day 2: Sessions addressing the following MDO topics
Please register for the workshop (free of charge) until 31st of July 2017 by sending an Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
