Within the joint project AeroStruct, the Department of Flight Mechanics, Flight Control and Aeroelasticity at TU Berlin developed generic flight control modules for considering the influence of flight control functions in preliminary aircraft design. In order to improve the methods used for the design process, an automated tool chain was set up, that builts a flight-mechanical model of the airplane, calculates controller parameters according to consistent criteria and automatically implements flight control functions in a high fidelity simulation environment.
