Whether it is commercial or military aviation, the industry is investing billions in the electrification of aircraft systems and weapon systems. This electrification, combined with other trends like the implementation of composite materials or the search for stealthy aircraft shapes, creates new thermal and energy management challenges. These need to be addressed early in the development phase at an integrated level.

Using virtual integrated methodology allows manufacturers to combine model-based systems engineering, modeling, and simulation, verification and testing to build a digital twin to address increased thermal loads and decreased ability to reject heat. By performing architecture trade-off analysis early in the design cycle, frontloading system and equipment integration, optimizing passenger comfort, and identifying innovative designs, our solutions allow you to virtually design an optimal thermal performance before building prototypes. This global virtual thermal analysis reduces design and development costs and leads to safer thermal designs.

Lösungsfunktionen

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Aircraft Electrical Systems

Create a more electric aircraft by optimizing its electrical network and accounting for thermal integration. Simcenter Amesim helps you design reliable generators, electromechanical and electrohydrostatic actuators, and analyze the impact of network reconfiguration in case of failure. Using co-simulation with Simulink ®, you can integrate generator control units with high-fidelity multi-physics models. Preprocessing and postprocessing tools, like EHA and EMA parameter optimization, fast Fourier transform (FFT), and linear analysis features, help with certification tests.

Aircraft Engine Performance Engineering

Achieving performance requirements for emissions, noise, energy efficiency, safety, reliability in complex aircraft engine systems requires a platform that provides an integrated view of a large set of disciplines. By uniquely combining robust design space exploration, scalable multi-physics, dynamics and CFD capabilities, industry-leading physical testing and experienced engineering services, Siemens Digital Industry Software portfolio delivers engineering insight on all levels.

Aircraft Performance Engineering

The aerodynamic, structural, and system choices of today define the aircraft performance of tomorrow and can make or break the aircraft program’s 10 to 40 year future. An integrated digitalization strategy accelerates aircraft programs and reduces engineering risk to achieve better designs faster, thus eliminating costly issues later in design cycle.

Design Exploration
