The  StratosLiner  concept is patented in Europe, patent pending elsewhere.
Backward and forward swept aircraft wing sections in a decagonal box wing configuration.
This wing concept is a new sub-class within
Non Planar Wings >> Closed Wing (box wing, ring wing, joined wing).
The available papers are presented below.
The preferred embodiment (image, May 2016) is modeled without propulsion.
The cross sectional diagram is also shown, as well as the
improved passenger capacity (typical seat configuration),
to be compared to the Airbus A380 as a reference aircraft, similarly modeled.

BENEFITS

How to build the largest aircraft in the world ?
Airline companies want to buy stretched versions of the largest airliners we have today. Even if the manufacturers are capable of constructing larger versions, the increased wingspan is not manageable for our airports. But the StratosLiner concept makes it possible to build larger (longer) aircraft, with a relatively small wingspan.



The above image on the left shows StratosLiner with the same length as the overall length of the Airbus A380 (the largest aircraft in the world, in production). Both aircraft have the same wing area but StratosLiner's wingspan is significantly smaller. The image on the right side shows a 41 per cent stretched version of StratosLiner, with a wingspan still smaller than that of the Airbus A380. But StratosLiner's wing area is twice as large! This is the way Sir Richard Branson's dream about 1000+ passengers could become a reality...   However, this concept is not limited to target large airliners and heavy cargo planes. The only field of use hard to imagine for StratosLiner is as a hydroplane.

StratosLiner Simulations July 2015  (29 pages)
Comparative study, main finding: StratosLiner 's Lift/Drag ratio is 19-32% better than that of the Airbus A380, in the whole range of NASA 's simulation tool.

Wing Volume Comparisons July 2015  (15 pages)

The total wing volume of StratosLiner is less than half of the wing volume of the Airbus A380, which means that the wing box can be reinforced (if needed) up to twice as much weight per volume unit, and the total wing weight will still be less than the wing weight of the A380.  

Flowsquare Simulations 2D August 2015  (6 pages)
Climbing and aerodynamic interference between the multiple wings of StratosLiner. Simulation results: Speed, Vorticity, Pressure.

Airfoil modifications for wing modeling incl. wing geometry data - 23 Aug 2016  (Excel)
Modifications of size, thickness, camber and twist of selected airfoils (DAT files). Analysis of chordwise surface waviness (two steps). Geometry data of the preferred embodiment of the wings (May 2016) are also provided, for easy CAD modeling. DAT files with different charts are added: D8RE (courtesy Dr. Mark Drela M.I.T.), Airbus TA11 (original and corrected), Boeing BAC1 (improved), SC20612 (UIUC), SC20710 (NASA, w two different precisions), NACA n63010a (improved, symmetric, meant for the Wingtip Fence).

A CFD Analysis of StratosLiner May 2017  (100 pages)
A comprehensive aerodynamic analysis of StratosLiner's wings, in comparison to the wings and tail fins of the Airbus A380. Two embodiments of StratosLiner are examined, both are still in the early design stage, i.e. there is a lot of potential to improvements. Main findings: StratosLiner's wings produce 12.1% more Lift, the Lift/Drag is 13.14% better and the Efficiency of Fuel Conversion is 24.79% better, compared to the A380.
