A multilevel approach for the optimization of stiffened panels in composite wing structures is presented. At the upper level the in-plane stiffnesses of the stiffened panels are minimized subject to strength, elastic stability and aeroelastic constraints. At the lower level the flexural stiffnesses of the panels are optimized to obtain panels with the largest margin of safety with respect to buckling under the applied loading and subject to the inplane stiffness requirements set by the upper… CONTINUE READING
