SIMULTANEOUS OPTIMIZATION OF AIRFRAME AND ENGINE FOR SUPERSONIC TRANSPORT
A. Ueno, Y. Watanabe
Keywords: sst, optimization, aerodynamic performance, engine performance
Research objective is to propose design guides of specifications of both airframe and engine for supersonic transport considering economical and environmental aspects. The optimization study was conducted with design parameters of both airframe and engine. Results are discussed based on Pareto-optimal solutions with respect to range performance and vehicle weight.
