Is there any common research platform, like the Common Research Model of NASA for supersonic transport flight?

I assume that in aerospace industry, every company has his own research platforms depending on previous projects but was there any common model that companies shared for this purpose?

  • $\begingroup$ Of-course they do, if it's not always internal they just outsource it to research centers (NASA, ONERA, DLR etc.), or universities. cbc.ca/news/technology/… $\endgroup$ – ares Dec 18 '17 at 3:31

    $\begingroup$ @MarkJonesJr. Great! That's indeed an answer to the question, the CRM was also studied for the other workshops (high-lift etc.) so we could consider this one a common research supersonic platform at the moment. $\endgroup$ – ares Jan 28 '18 at 20:28

According to NASA here:

This test case is an aircraft concept previously used as an optional case (LM1021) in the 1st Sonic Boom Prediction Workshop. This configuration is described in the following reference: John Morgenstern, Nicole Norstrud, Jack Sokhey, Steve Martins, and Juan J. Alonso, “Advanced Concept Studies for Supersonic Commercial Transports Entering Service in the 2018 to 2020 Period,” NASA CR-2013-217820,DOI:2060/20130010174. See NTRS Record. There is also a description in the following reference: John M. Morgenstern, Michael Buonanno, and Frank Marconi, “Full Configuration Low Boom Model and Grids for 2014 Sonic Boom Prediction Workshop,” AIAA-2013-647.

    $\begingroup$ Interesting but I am asking for a common research model, i.e. a model that was shared between other aerospace research centers throughout the world, like ONERA, DLR etc. $\endgroup$ – ares Jan 14 '18 at 18:00
  • $\begingroup$ @AlexandrosK. I thought as much but couldn't find something equivalent. $\endgroup$ – Mark Jones Jr. Jan 14 '18 at 22:13
