Title: "Design Methodology for Revolutionary Aerospace Concepts"

Sponsor: NASA Langley

Objective: To research physics-based conceptual design frameworks that will support the creation and analysis of novel aerospace vehicle concepts.

Desired features of such a framework:
  • Supports the creative power of multidisciplinary, interactive design teams
  • Integrates decision-makers into the design process
  • Based on rapid-turnaround, variable-fidelity physics-based analysis and simulation
  • Can handle unconventional configurations
  • Deals with uncertainty
  • Produces robust, top-level optimized designs
