Abstract

Multiobjective Genetic Algorithms (MOGAs) have been applied to design a transonic wing shape. First, the wing planform is optimized by solving a multidisciplinary optimization problem based on aerodynamic, structural and fuel storing objectives and constraints. Second, three-dimensional target pressure distribution is optimized for the aerodynamic inverse design with the previously designed planform. Minimization of the profile drag and the induced drag is performed under constraints on lift and other design principles. Corresponding wing surface geometry is obtained by Takanashi's inverse method. These two multiobjective optimization problems are solved by Pareto-based MOGAs coupled with appropriate CFD solvers. Applying these two wing design procedures, Pareto surfaces can be studied for trade-offs and a good compromised solution for the wing design can be obtained.
