A multi-disciplinary toolbox for rotorcraft design

Weiand, Peter and Krenik, Alex (2018) A multi-disciplinary toolbox for rotorcraft design. The Aeronautical Journal, 122 (1250), pp. 620-645. Cambridge University Press. doi: 10.1017/aer.2018.2. ISSN 0001-9240.

The purpose of this paper is to outline the structure of the DLR integrated rotorcraft design process. The complexity of rotorcraft design requires the development of the tools directly by the specialists of the respective institutes, where the tools are continuously refined and published to authorised users. The integration of the tools into a suitable software Framework by means of distributed computation and the harmonisation of the tools among each other are presented. This framework delivers a high level of modularity making the layout and testing of the process very flexible. This design environment covers the conceptual and preliminary design phases. Not only conventional main/tail rotor configurations can be designed, but also some other configurations with more than one main rotor. The fundamental concept behind the layout of the tools is demonstrated, especially the use of scaling and optimisation loops in connection with the different levels of fidelity and the different phases of design.
