Abstract

A new optimization approach for robust design, design for multi-objective six sigma (DFMOSS) has been developed and applied to robust aerodynamic airfoil design for Mars exploratory airplane. The present robust aerodynamic airfoil design optimization using DFMOSS successfully showed the trade-off information between maximization and robustness improvement in aerodynamic performance by a single optimization run without careful input parameter tuning. The obtained trade-off information indicated that an airfoil with a smaller maximum camber improves robustness of lift to drag ratio, and that with a larger curvature near the shock wave location improves robustness of pitching moment against the variation of flight Mach number.
