Paper Abstract

The aircraft design process is characterized by the application of a wide range of knowledge, based upon a certain degree of judgement and experience of the designer. In this paper we outline this process and the scope of a computer program which performs one aspect of the overall task related to wing design. Emphasis is given to the contrast between wing design and the more elaborate requirements needed to describe the aircraft configuration. It is shown how the solution of the latter problem is aided by identifying different types of knowledge.
