Analysis and optimization of conceptual landing gear designs

This project, sponsored by Safran Landing Systems Canada (SafranLS), involves the development of engineering techniques that enable rapid conceptual design of aircraft landing gear. The goal is to speed the early design of new landing gear to enable SafranLS to produce more, faster bids to manufacture landing gear for new aircraft at their two Canadian sites.

Integration of Safety Analysis into Model-Based Systems Engineering

In recent years, there has been a rapid advancement of technology and an increased use of computer models to develop aircraft and aircraft systems. Unfortunately, safety assessment procedures have remained largely document-based, and thus have struggled to keep up with such rapid design changes. The objective of this project is to develop a solution that will enable safety assessment to be conducted more efficiently and reliably, and hence decreasing development time and cost.
