The TOICA project intends to radically change the way thermal studies are performed within aircraft design processes. It will create and manage a thermal aircraft architecture which today does not exist. Chalmers will in this project contribute with new PLM based models and methods for: system based development and configuration of platform architectures, robust design and geometry assurance, and coupled MDO that includes CFD and thermal/structural FEA.
Projectleader: Christoffer Levandowski
Consortium with European partners, e.g. Airbus and GKN
Product architectures, set-based design, product platform, configuration, aero engine, structure design
