CAD-based wing optimisation for the XRF1 - CASE studentship Airbus
The analysis of aircraft wings is highly multi-disciplinary including e.g. aerodynamic loads as well as structural weight. The large number of parameters that are needed to describe an optimal design requires gradient-based optimisation methods. The unique feature of the project is the first use of a gradient-enabled CAD system in aircraft design which was developed in a preceding project.
