Aerodynamic Structural and Esability Design of a Mini-VANT

Lucas da Silva Vieira (University of Brasilia)

One of the correlation matrix used for the sensitivity analysis related to the carbon tubes variables.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 mini-UAV, meeting the specifications proposed by the public call MCT/FINEPCTAEROVANT -01/2009. The optimization, implemented in the commercial software modeFRONTIER, analyses several configurations, looking for an aircraft with less mass, and that meets the restrictions. The results are compared with the prototype already built into the UAV Working Group / UNB, which was established as a reference model, seeking to reduce its mass and improve their characteristics.
