Abstract

The paper will deal with the design of the aircraft, starting from a market survey, conceptual design loop and preliminary choice of dimensions up to detailed design of an efficient high-lift systems and low-drag fuselage shape. Technological challenges regarding the design of low-cost systems for the flap/slat retraction and simple wing folding system will be highlighted. Aiming to an efficient optimization algorithm, it has been developed a new integration technique between CAD, aerodynamic and structural numerical calculation and examples deriving from this new approach will be presented.
