In the aircraft industry, aggressive weight targets, shortened development time scale and reduced costs require different approaches for the design process to be competitive in today's global market. A challenge for the scientific community is to adapt to and exploit the trend towards multi-disciplinary consideration of many objectives and design criteria. Such a multi-disciplinary approach is essential in the design process of real world applications. In particular the step change in performance required by the ACARE 2050 vision for commercial transport aircraft will be dependent on the successful integration of Multi-Disciplinary (MD) design capabilities at the preliminary design stage. A preliminary MD approach would allow aircraft architects to study more design alternatives in greater detail. An automated, integrated aerodynamics process is a pre-requisite for such a capability, and so must be developed if this opportunity is to be addressed. The present work is concerned with the development and enhancement of an automatic industrial aerodynamics process that will enable MD trade studies for the preliminary design of aircraft.
