This paper presents the aerodynamic design process of a Blended-Wing-Body airplane for 200 passengers. The wing is designed by using Takanashi's inverse design method where the target pressure distributions are specified by using the constrained target pressure specification technique. RAPID methodology is utilized to obtain a smooth wing surface. This study shows that the combination of those three design tools works well to design the Blended-Wing-Body airplane configuration.
