The FP5 program includes the MOB (Multidisciplinary Optimisation of a Blended Wing Body [25]) and VELA (Very Efficient Large Aircraft [26]) projects: in the MOB project, a Computational Design Engine (CDE) for the BWB multidisciplinary design and optimisation was developed, whereas VELA analysed two BWB configurations (VELA 1 and VELA 2) used as baseline for the design of the VELA 3, a BWB aircraft powered by 4 engines mounted under the wing.
