Supersonic Business Jet Design Through Bi-Level Integrated System Synthesis 1999-01-5622
New optimization methods that are intended as an improvement over traditional design methodology often require the design model itself to be developed in a nontraditional manner. This paper describes the tailoring of a supersonic business jet design model to the Bi-Level Integrated System Synthesis (BLISS) optimization method. Included is a brief discussion of BLISS, the development and implementation of the design model, application of the design constraints, and a survey of favorable results. For discussion purposes, the design model is ‘tailored’ to the optimization method, not vice versa, to illustrate the model’s unique development.
