Contrary to the common procedure of designing the fuselage structure first and then integrating the cabin, the Passenger Driven Aircraft (PDA) Concept is tracking an innovative inside-out approach. That means, with the focus on the passengers’ needs, the cabin layout, i.e. “H-Cylinder”, “V-Cylinder”, and “V-Lens” designs, marks the starting point of the structural fuselage design. Based on these PDA cabin layouts suitable structural fuselage concepts have been developed. Parametric CAD models were used addressing the aero-driven single bubble / elliptical shape and structure-driven quadruple bubble configurations. Based on these models each of the partners developed their solutions to serve as an input for the Joint Probabilistic Decision Making (JPDM) process. “H-Cylinder” and “V-Cylinder” layouts revealed to be the most interesting variants for reasons of significance and were examined in terms of weight as a characteristic assessment parameter. Currently the structural concepts are being optimised using the Finite Element Method (FEM).
