SP Aircraft

Code

vsp_example

SPaircraft is a signomial programming compatible transonic aircraft conceptual design optimization tool. It is of similar level of fidelity as TASOPT, and can perform the single- and multi-mission optimization of different configurations of aircraft. The most notable of these are conventional tube-and-wing aircraft, and the D8 double bubble aircraft, which promises dramatic fuel burn benefits over the conventional configuration.
