GLOWOPT – A NEW APPROACH TOWARDS GLOBAL-WARMING-OPTIMIZED AIRCRAFT DESIGN

Description

A new concept for designing aircraft with minimum climate impact is presented. The paper describes the GLOWOPT approach, which is  currently being implemented in the framework of the Clean Sky 2 programme. It aims at developing and validating so-called Climate Functions for Aircraft Design (CFAD). Those functions constitute an easy-to-use tool, which can be integrated into existing aircraft synthesis workflows without high adaptation effort. They will be made available to the relevant stakeholders including aircraft manufacturers, and thus allow for the development of new aircraft with a significantly reduced impact on global warming.
