  1. 1. Cost/Weight Optimization of Aircraft Structures

    Author : Markus Kaufmann; Dan Zenkert; Frédéric Lani; KTH; []
    Keywords : 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

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Two-dimensional ultrasound; three-dimensional ultrasound; fetus; intrauterine growth; maternal characteristic; large-for-gestational age; antenatal calculation; Bayesian theorem; fetal weight; estimation; post-term fetus; fetal macrosomia;

    Abstract : The proportions of newborns with a birth weight (BW) >4,000 g and of macrosomic newborns (BW >4,500 g) have increased during the last two decades, parallel with an increasing maternal pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) and age at the time for pregnancy. Delivery of a large fetus, especially >4,500 g might cause perinatal complications for both the mother and her child. READ MORE
