High Fidelity Multidisciplinary Optimization

High Fidelity Multidisciplinary Optimization (HFMDO) delivers physics-based multidisciplinary analysis and design optimization (MDAO) capabilities that are required to develop next generation supersonic fixed wing aircrafts. M4 Engineering and Phoenix Integration combined their specialties to deliver a modular design environment through an enhanced ModelCenter framework that is suitable to high fidelity analysis and design of coupled systems. The integrated modules include geometry, aerodynamics, propulsion, structural, stability and control, noise, and mission as Robust system analysis through MDAO.well as our geometry morphing (GMAP) and automatic FEM generation (RapidFEM) software.The software tools and approaches upgrade MDAO capability to the next level.
