In a textbook on aircraft design, Raymer integrates design layout and design analysis in manner that reflects the actual process of designing an aircraft.
The paper is organized as follows: first, the aircraft design problem is described and design mission profile and weight sizing module are presented; second, the optimization problem is described along with objective function and constraints; third, the GA methodology for aircraft design optimization is presented; fourth, the results of the GA optimization are reported and compared; and finally, the conclusions and implications of the study are discussed.
Dassault Systemes (Paris:DSY.PA), a provider of 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, on Thursday announced the selection by Elixir Aircraft, a French aviation start-up, of its 3DEXPERIENCE platform to develop the industry's first aircraft designed using cloud-based applications.

Though missiles briefly travel hypersonically they do not return in the same piece as which they were launched so the rocket powered X-15 would be a pioneering aircraft design. The X-15 design proposal request called for an aircraft which could fly in the hypersonic flight regime to gather data for future aircraft designs but also fly transonically as well as subsonically.
