Anil Yildirim Wins the MDO Student Paper Competition at AIAA Aviation

Anil Yildirim’s paper on coupled aeropropulsive optimization was selected the best student paper in MDO at the AIAA Aviation Forum.

Anil’s paper presents the development of two fully-coupled aeropropulsive models to be used with gradient based design optimization. The models’ robustness facilitates large parameter studies using design optimization, and their fully coupled nature enables the solution of multipoint aeropropulsive design optimization problems. These advancements will be essential for future aeropropulsive design optimizations of complete propulsion systems.
