Lecture Title: Research and Practice on System Virtual Integration Framework for Aircraft Overall Design

Lecture Summary/Abstract:

The increased complexity of aviation equipment has brought about a development paradigm shift. Especially in the overall design of aviation equipment, in order to accurately predict and assess the performance, characteristics, behavior and function of the aircraft, it is necessary to use the method of computer simulation, which virtually integrates the aircraft's key systems together with the scenario environment to carry out the simulation verification, to ensure that the aircraft's properties emerge through multi-system interactions, such that the design problems and failures are exposed in the front-end.

In this speech I will propose a new virtual synthesis framework for the overall design of aircraft, adopting system engineering methodology and layered abstraction. The first layer verifies the behavior, functions, interfaces, etc. of the aircraft architectural model through discrete-event simulation, and the second layer constructs a multidisciplinary-coupled dynamics model, which verifies the performance of the aircraft, the spatio-temporal relationship, etc.. The purpose is to realize the design synthesis, virtual testing, requirement verification and iterative optimization of aviation equipment at the early stage of design, so as to improve the level of equipment digital development.
