A probabilistic approach for trade-off analysis of composite wing structures at the conceptual phase of design (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Bacharoudis, K., Turner, T., Popov, A., & Ratchev, S. (2019). A probabilistic approach for trade-off analysis of composite wing structures at the conceptual phase of design. In S. Ratchev (Ed.), Precision Assembly in the Digital Age, 103-113. doi:10.1007/978-3-030-05931-6_10

One of the major elements when performing a design for manufacturing and assembly methodology is the cost modelling method. A probabilistic cost approach is introduced herein for the series production of a composite wing structure. The proposed metho... Read More

Trade-off study of a variation aware determinate wing assembly against a traditional assembly strategy (2018)
Journal Article
Bacharoudis, K., Bakker, O. J., Popov, A., & Ratchev, S. (2018). Trade-off study of a variation aware determinate wing assembly against a traditional assembly strategy. MATEC Web of Conferences, 233, doi:10.1051/matecconf/201823300008

The present study introduces a trade-off framework to evaluate assembly concepts to make informed decisions for aircraft wing structures. This includes (1) the design of the assembly concepts and the estimation of the probability of achieving specifi... Read More
