Four steps to optimise aircraft wing design through simulation and artificial intelligence

The DAWS (Development of Advanced Wing Solutions) project seeks to find new and disruptive ways to design aircraft wings. Currently, many hours of manual work are spent prototyping, where multiple designs are created, tested, and modified to select a base design. Using a combination of fluid and structural simulations and artificial intelligence, CFMS aims to create a system which can converge on a design without human input, significantly reducing the time spent prototyping. This video shows a part of this process – creating a mesh to be used in a structural analysis. The process shown is automated in code and highly parameterised. This allows a wide range of winglets to be created without any additional human input.
