Abstract
THE OVERALL GOAL OF THIS STUDY WILL BE TO DEVELOP AN INTERACTIVE, OPTIMIZATION-BASED, COMPUTER GRAPHICS SOFTWARE PACKAGE FOR THE DETERMINATION OF THE OPTIMAL PHYSICAL FIT OF OBJECTS (I.E. WEAPONS, SUBMUNITIONS, ETC...) INTO CONTAINERS (I.E. AIRCRAFT, MISSILE DISPENSERS, TEC...). THIS PACKAGE WILL HAVE 1) A GEOMETRIC MODELER FOR THE CREATION OF THE GEOMETRIC DESCRIPTION, 2) A DESIGN DEFINITION ROUTINE FOR THE LAYOUT OF THE INITIAL DESIGN, 3) AN OPTIMIZATION ROUTINE TO OPTIMIZE THE SPATIAL FIT AND, 4) A GRAPHIC DISPLAY OF ALL INTERMEDIATE AND FINAL RESULTS. THIS STUDY WILL ALSO INCLUDE 1) A SURVEY OF THE EXISTING STATE-OF-THE-ART IN OPTIMIZATION TECHNIQUES, 2) THE STUDY OF THE FEASIBILITY OF REFORMATTING THE EXISTING GEOMETRICAL DATA BASES OF AIRCRAFT, WEAPONS, RACKS, RAILS AND SUBMUNITIONS, AND 3) THE STUDY OF THE FEASIBILITY OF REFORMATTING THE OUTPUT DATA FROM THE GEOMETRICAL DATABASES FOR USE IN CERTAIN AERODYNAMIC AND RADAR PREDICTION CODES.
