Computerised Environment for Aircraft Synthesis and Integrated Optimisation Methods
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.
April 10, 2014: CEASIOM V4.0 is now available in the download center
We are proud to announce that BLSC is now the official CEASIOM agent in China.
A dedicated Chinese forum is available on cfluid website.
- Santiago Ramirez Rubio from KTH has published a Msc thesis called "Aerodynamic analysis of a sustainable-energy sailplane using CEASIOM", directed by Prof. Arthur Rizzi.
- The v3.0 official release of CEASIOM is available in the download center.
- A. Rizzi, M. Zhang, B. Nagel, D. Boehnke and P. Saquet have published an article called "Towards a Unified Framework using CPACS for Geometry Management in Aircraft Design" for the 50th AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting (Nashville, 9–12 January 2012)
- A Special issue of "Progress in Aerospace Sciences" published by Elsevier and dedicated to CEASIOM is just released.
- A new CEASIOM tutorial is available based on the TCR-C (Transonic cruser with a canard) aircraft.
- Mengmeng Zhang from KTH has published a licentiate thesis called "Application and Development of the CEASIOM-SUMO-EDGE Suite for Rapid AeroData Assessment of Aircraft Flying Qualities", directed by Prof. Arthur Rizzi.
- A. Rizzi, J. Oppelstrup, M. Zhang and M. Tomac from KTH have published an article called "Coupling Parametric Aircraft Lofting to CFD & CSM Grid Generation for Conceptual Design" for the 49th AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting. It deals with the coupling of CEASIOM with the conceptual design system RDS Professional.
- Maria Pester from HAW has published a master's thesis called "Multi-Disciplinary Conceptual Aircraft Design using CEASIOM", directed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dieter Scholz.
- Kolja Seeckt from KTH wrote a report called "Application of PreSTo: Aircraft Preliminary Sizing and Data Export to CEASIOM". It deals witht the coupling of CEASIOM with the Preliminary Sizing Tool PreSTO.
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.
