  1. 1. Cost Optimization of Aircraft Structures

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Markus Kaufmann; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aircraft structures; optimization; cost estimation; manufacturing cost; direct operating cost; multiobjective optimization; multidisciplinary optimization; composites; airframe design; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Vehicle engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Composite structures can lower the weight of an airliner significantly. Due to the higher process complexity and the high material cost, however, the low weight often comes with a significant increase in production cost. The application of cost-effective design strategies is one mean to meet this challenge. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cost/Weight Optimization of Aircraft Structures

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Markus Kaufmann; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cost Weight Optimization; Weight Penalty; Direct Operating Cost; Composite Structures; Non-destructive testing; Finite element analysis FEA ; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Composite structures can lower the weight of an airliner significantly. The increased production cost, however, requires the application of cost-effective design strategies. Hence, a comparative value is required which is used for the evaluation of a design solution in terms of cost and weight. READ MORE
