Airfoil optimizations require costly high-fidelity solvers. By replacing the expensive solver with a cheap to evaluate surrogate model genetic optimization becomes feasible and a global optimum can be obtained. This thesis investigates applicability of surrogate model based optimization for airfoil optimization and provides recommendations...

Current wing design processes are strongly governed by cruise design requirements. This approach to wing design leaves little room for high-lift device design optimization where trade-offs may be required between cruise wing and high-lift wing design. Moreover, the optimization of high-lift devices typically focuses on optimizing flap/slat...

At present, on the aviation market a need exists for lighter and more efficient aircraft than the ones dominating the airspace today. Beside the reduction in operating costs and air pollutants of these new generation aircraft, this reduction in fuel use can result in several advantages with respect to the performance of the aircraft like...

The project covers creation of a framework for optimisation of wind farm layouts. The optimisation is done with an objective of maximising the Net Present Value of the farm. With that aim, both power production and the fatigue driven component degradation are considered. The work is split in two main parts. First, in order to circumvent the use...

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...
