Comparison of Design Methodologies in the Preliminary Design of a Passenger Aircraft

Research Area: Research Publication Year: 1999
Type of Publication: Technical Report
Authors: Hacker, Kurt; Lewis, Kemper
In this paper we seek to compare the configurations and quality of passenger aircraft resulting from the use of different design methodologies. First, we will optimize the design in the traditional iterative framework that is generally followed in practice. To this we will compare the results obtained following a design methodology based in part on game theoretic principles. We will compare not only the quality of the resulting designs, but also the efficiency of the design process in terms of time and cost
