Insights and Challenges of Flight Simulation Systems in Air Transportation

(Conference Proceeding)

Conference: ICEUBI 2015

Location: Covilhã, Portugal

Abstract

Nowadays it is necessary to produce innovative and reliable products at the lowest possible cost. Simulation is present during design, development and validation of aeronautical vehicles or systems. It is widely used, seen on design tools like Computer Aided Three-dimensional Interactive Application (CATIA), MATrix LABoraty (MATLAB) or in Flight Simulation. X-Plane, Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS)/Lockheed Martin Prepar3D® and Flight Gear are the most used software when it comes to simulation of aeronautical systems in a virtual World. They are based on two different flight dynamics methods, the Newtonian and the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), each one with different capabilities. In the beginning of Aviation, airships were used to transport passengers but today the researchers are developing further studies regarding its flight capabilities. The goal of this article is survey the tools and methods to simulation a system and research the best platform to simulation a Rigid Hybrid Airship.
