A multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) framework has been used to design an aircraft brake assembly. This was done using a user-interactive implementation of the framework in which design information was obtained from analysis software used in industry but not developed for an MDO application. The design included a number of performance requirements associated with a brake that has been produced for a commercial aircraft. Design improvement was achieved using a practical number of system realizations and the interaction between the optimization algorithm and the design engineers was maintained throughout the process.
