Abstract:
The strong influence of unpredictable factors on the development of future concepts for cabins of Blended Wing Body (BWB) aircraft favors the methodology of scenario techniques. The scenario process performed at Technische Universitat München together with Airbus Deutschland GmbH, DaimlerChrysler Society and Technology Research Group and industrial Design Studio comprises the development of three different scenarios, the implication of specific requirements and the realization of preliminary cabin concepts. On the basis of current cabin standards of the A380, new standards for the BWB cabin designs were quantitatively derived for each scenario. According to these inputs, two-dimensional cabin layouts and specific system solutions have been developed and sketched to visualize the concepts. In a final step, specific requirements and technologies have been evaluated in all scenarios to identify their compatibility in the respective future environments.
