CATIA-based Wing Geometry Modelling Services
The geometry service makes use of a parametric CAD package, CATIA V5, to provide geometry definitions for subsequent aerodynamic and acoustic analysis in the aircraft design process. The core of the services is a parametric definition of the geometry which, when different parameter values are provided, will generate instances of geometry definition of different shape, allowing alternative shapes to be explored using analysis tools. The main contribution here is the increased accessibility of geometry data defined in CAD to partners via web services interfaces.
A stable release is available for use in the SIMDAT aerospace application scenario.
