This work focuses on a multidisciplinary design optimization of an aircraft wing. Among others, a structural optimization of the wing stiffness is performed. For a certain stiffness model, a set of relevant load cases can be determined that have high chance to cause active constraints. The purpose of this research is to investigate if the set of...

Multidisciplinary design optimizations have shown great benefits for aerospace applications in the past. Especially in the last decades with the advent of high speed computing. Still computational time limits the desire for models with high level of fidelity cannot be always fulfilled. As a conse- quence, fidelity is often sacrificed in order to...
