High-fidelity Optimization of a Transport Aircraft Wing

The objective of this work is to perform the aero-structural design optimization of a transonic business-jet wing. For this purpose, Euler 3D CFD with refined mesh and a beam-based finite element model for the wing structure have been used: the first to predict aerodynamic performance of the wing, the latter to predict overall wing stiffness (bending and torsional).

Methodology

The available literature about MDO applied to aircraft design uses the Breguet range equation as objective function. This means that the variation of ...
