Aerodynamic Structural and Esability Design of a Mini-VANT
This work develops a multidisciplinary optimization methodology to create the conceptual design of a mini-UAV. The optimization, implemented in the commercial software modeFRONTIER, analyses several configurations, looking for an aircraft with less mass, and that meets the restrictions.
Multdisciplinary Design Optimization Applied to the Conceptual Design of a Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
The use of UAV aircraft has been increased in many sectors of society such as military defense, public security, search and rescue, remote sensing, agriculture control among others. This work develops a multidisciplinary optimization methodology to create the conceptual design of a small UAV, involving the areas of aerodynamics, structures and stability. The optimization, implemented in the commercial software modeFRONTIER, analyzes several configurations, looking for an aircraft with less mass, and that meets the project restrictions. The results are compared to a previously designed prototype, which was established as a reference model, seeking to reduce its mass and improve their characteristics.
Keeping it cool with modeFRONTIER
When it comes to reducing fuel consumption, one effective strategy is to improve the performance of an engine’s transient cooling system. The Diesel Engine Development Department at BMW used modeFRONTIER® to optimize engine parameters related to the cooling system and to support the validation steps for the newly updated thermal model, in this way determining an accurate framework for comparing and optimizing different cooling packages.
