Previous projects include:
A300 Fuel System Simulation
Developed a simulation of the fuel control computers for the early Airbus A300 from scratch from interpreting logic from wiring diagrams, the models were used to debug control problems seen on the aircraft and were well received by supplier.
A350 and A400M Fuel System Control and Indication Modelling – Matlab/Simulink model of the fluid mechanical architecture of the aircraft, plus fuel system control logic and aircraft environment simulation of the systems interfaced with the fuel system. I was involved at an early stage in the project allowed for capturing of lessons learnt from A380 Modelling activity to allow for a smoother development and enabling the communication between teams so the modelling process uses the models developed by all, therefore making the product useful to a wider audience.
A350 and A400M Fuel System model for test and flight simulators – based on the model above a C code model of the above model is created for integration on the validation and verification full aircraft simulators based in Airbus France, Toulouse
A350 Avionics Test Rigs – Software Development and maintenance, adding additional functionality such as adding functionality to the Software infrastructure C code, simulink models, integrating multi-physics based external models (fluid mechanical, electrical, AFDX/Arinc network), working through a variety of Rig Problem Reports. Technologies used are C code, Matlab/Simulink, Tcl/Tk on Windows and VxWorks platforms.
More Electric Aircraft Architecture – This is an exciting research project into the use of More Electric Architectures for the next generation of Aircraft, involving the development of a large model of an aircraft electrical architecture plus loads and power sources, such as Engine, APU and ECS models. These models are used to quantify the benefits available at an aircraft level in integrating each system future technologies into a single environment.
Boeing 787 Landing Gear Health Management System – Development of the airborne software for the health management software, the software was developed using a matlab and Simulink model auto-converted to SCADE and C code auto-generated from SCADE. This allowed for a successful result with only one level of manual intervention leading to a smooth transition from requirements definition to embedded code. The project also made use of automated test platform, which could be used at the requirements stage to embedded software stage with the same set of scripts. The code was developed to the standard DO178b Level C.
Airbus Fuel Tank Modelling Development – Development of fuel tank volumetric models are essential in the development of an aircraft from defining the range of an aircraft to location of fuel measurement equipment to fuel avionics development and much more. We currently work on a contract providing technical reviews of the fuel tank model development.
