A method is presented for concurrent aerostructural optimization of wing planform, airfoil and high lift devices. The optimization is defined to minimize the aircraft fuel consumption for cruise, while satisfying the field performance requirements. A coupled adjoint aerostructural tool, that couples a quasi-three-dimensional aerodynamic...

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...

A trust region filter-SQP method is used for wing multi-fidelity aerostructural optimization. Filter method eliminates the need for a penalty function, and subsequently a penalty parameter. Besides, it can easily be modified to be used for multi-fidelity optimization. A low fidelity aerostructural analysis tool is presented, that computes the...

This paper presents a method for wing aerostructural analysis and optimization, which needs much lower computational costs, while computes the wing drag and structural deformation with a level of accuracy comparable to the higher fidelity CFD and FEM tools. A quasi-threedimensional aerodynamic solver is developed and connected to a finite beam...
