Computerised Environment for Aircraft Synthesis and Integrated Optimisation Methods

April 10, 2014: CEASIOM V4.0 is now available in the download center


A dedicated Chinese forum is available on cfluid website.

Problems were discovered with CEASIOM and Matlab Version 2013a. It is recommended not to use this Matlab version until these problems have been solved

Advance Aircraft Design Framework CEASIOM Short Course in China (21-23 September 2016)

The 2nd short course for advance aircraft design framework CEASIOM in China, which will be held on 21-23 September 2016 at Northwestern Polytechnical University, by a joint efforts of Northwest Polytechnic University (China), ACTRI(China), Royal Institute of Technology KTH (Sweden), CFS Engineering (Switzerland), Airinnova Co., Ltd (Sweden) and CnTech Co., Ltd (China).

The Experimental Data Base of the Transonic Cruiser Aircraft (TCR) is now available from the download center. The TCR was designed in the European Funded Framework Program 6 project SimSAC, and experiments to determine the static and dynamic stability derivatives were made at TsAGI. The whole experimental data base is now made available under a creative commons license.

Several Master degree thesis studies were made with the upcoming CEASIOM release based on the CPACS data format. They can be found here.

The CEASIOM application is a Conceptual Aircraft design tool. It was developed within the frame of the SimSAC (Simulating Aircraft Stability And Control Characteristics for Use in Conceptual Design) Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) approved for funding by the European Commission 6th Framework Programme on Research, Technological Development and Demonstration. Work began 1 November 2006 and last 3 years (see www.simsacdesign.eu). The SimSAC project aims at significantly enhancing CEASIOM functionality by introducing software that initially focuses on rapid low fidelity analysis, and as appropriate, resort to higher fidelity numerical simulations. Moreover CEASIOM involve stability and control driven sizing and optimization earlier in the design cycle than is standard practice today.
CEASIOM runs under either Windows or Linux, and its only requires a MATLAB® license.


A poster and an online tutorial dedicated to CEASIOM are available.
