Group evolutionary structural optimisation (GESO) is a recent modification of evolutionary structural optimisation (ESO) which extends the topological method to configuration optimisation. This paper demonstrates the optimisation of an aircraft wing with ESO and GESO. The optimisation is conducted over some of the major areas involved in the design of an aircraft wing. These include the optimisation of the configuration of the internal stiffeners, the sizing of the skin thickness and the… Expand
Aircraft morphing wing design by using partial topology optimization
A morphing wing concept has been investigated over the last decade because it can effectively enhance aircraft aerodynamic performance over a wider range of flight conditions through structuralExpand
Ground Structures-Based Topology Optimization of a Morphing Wing Using a Metaheuristic Algorithm
The purpose of this research is to design a new aircraft wing structure with a tapered shape for ribs, spars, and skins including a torsion beam for external actuating torques which is anticipated to modify the aeroelastic characteristic of the aircraft wing using multi-objective optimization.
