Conceptual Aircraft Design



Computerised Environment for Aircraft Synthesis and Integrated Optimisation Methods


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.

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


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.
