Aircraft Aerodynamic Design: Geometry and Optimization addresses this problem by navigating the subtle trade–offs between the competing objectives of geometry parameterization. It beginswith the fundamentals of geometry–centred aircraft design, followed by a review of the building blocks of computational geometries, the curve and surface formulations at the heart of aircraft geometry. The authors then cover a range of legacy formulations in the build–up towards a discussion of the most flexible shape models used in aerodynamic design (with a focus on lift generating surfaces). The book takes a practical approach and includes MATLAB®, Python and Rhinoceros® code, as well as real–life example case studies.
Covers effective geometry parameterization within the context of design optimization
Demonstrates how geometry parameterization is an important element of modern aircraft design
Includes code and case studies which enable the reader to apply each theoretical concept either as an aid to understanding or as a building block of their own geometry model
Accompanied by a website hosting codes
Aircraft Aerodynamic Design: Geometry and Optimization is a practical guide for researchers and practitioners in the aerospace industry, and a reference for graduate and undergraduate students in aircraft design and multidisciplinary design optimization.
