Optimising the design and simulation process for aerospace transmissions with HEATSSIM
Romax Technology Limited, ANSYS and the University of Nottingham are working on a project part-funded through the UK Aerospace R&T Programme, to optimise the design and simulation process for aerospace transmissions.
To identify which factors are most important, and which calculations can be run quickest and with the simplest model of the transmission, then to consider these factors earlier in the design process, Romax developed a unique multi-fidelity design process.
The most influential, simple and quick methods are used for the initial investigation, transitioning to more detailed methods when confirming the performance of the final design. All the key performance considerations are included, and each method uses a single definition of the transmission so that all analyses are up to date at all times.
