Computer Aided Preliminary Design of Aircraft

VisuaCAPDA is a joint project between the Technical University Berlin and the Aerospace Engineering & Information Technology Company PACE. As a tool for the analysis and conceptual design of commercial aircraft, it continuously supports the whole procedure of conceptual aircraft design (interactive initialization of the aircraft geometry, synthesis of aircraft design, and optimization of design parameter). It can also be used in the evaluation of competing configurations and analysis of flight and operating performance (e.g. direct operating costs, noise emission). VisualCAPDA is characterized by its modular concept, modern graphical user interface(GUI), extendible methods library, extensive database for engine, airfoil and aircraft, powerful post-processing, as well as an open and flexible system architecture. Its advanced idea is applicable to any software system handling other engineering products such as vehicle and turbine machine. Three programming languages (C/C++, FORTRAN and K ShellScript) are used in it.
