Abstract
ABSTRACT: This project concerns the research, development and demonstration of a novel MDO methodology that bridges the gap between conceptual and high-fidelity representation of air vehicle design by integrating engineering MDO principles, computer science software engineering, and biological principles for the translation of genotype to phenotype in an evolutionary context. BENEFIT: Success in the planned work would enable reduced design cycles in number of design iterations and development duration, while reducing development costs, both because of reduced design cycles and also due to the smaller engineering teams needed for conducting the design study of air vehicles. The anticipated commercialization includes aeronautical firms, both small and large, as well as space, automotive, energy and biomedical industries.
