Webinar | Accelerate Aircraft Design with Model-based Design Automation and Collaborative MDO

ESTECO and TXT company PACE will host a joint webinar on 10 June 2020 at 4:00PM CEST, demonstrating the added value of combining their technologies for a server-based optimization of an EXPEDITE (EXPanded MDO for Effectiveness Based DesIgn TEchnologies) derived preliminary aircraft design.

Taking an EXPEDITE-like modern aircraft conceptual design as a baseline, the webinar will initially showcase the advantages of creating a smart, reconfigurable aircraft model with PACE's preliminary aircraft design platform Pacelab APD and integrating it in modeFRONTIER parametric optimization to identify the optimum solutions, based on constraints and performance requirements.

Engineers at ESTECO and PACE will also conduct a live demo using VOLTA web collaborative platform for MDO. This scales up simulation to a broader audience (domain expert, chief engineer, manager to name a few), enabling, for instance, an expert to quickly set up or modify the aircraft design model and then run an optimization that can be accessed online by a colleague or manager in a different geographic location for further processing or iteration with the expert, all version controlled from a single repository.

Register for the webinar and learn more about how to implement this methodology in an international context, consisting of distributed teams and the extended enterprise.
