Title:
Comparative eVTOL UAV Design Optimization 
Abstract:
This paper describes a method to simulate and optimize eVTOL UAV. The simulation includes aerodynamics, flight mechanics, structural mechanics, electrical propulsion and flight performance calculations. The optimization is performed in the form of sensitivity studies, varying configuration parameters such as aspect ratio or the cruise speed. The propulsion system simulation is based on a database approach with commercially available components and a method is presented on how to efficiently inco...    »
