Multi-particle swarm optimization used to study material degradation in aeroelastic composites including probabalistic uncertainties

Abstract

Extensive research has been done in optimizing simple composite wings to maximize their flutter/divergence speeds by varying ply orientation angles. This paper extends upon previous work by simulating material degradation in multiple layers, thereby adding a dynamic component to the optimization problem. A multiple-swarm variation (MPSO*) of the canonical… (More)
