Abstract

This thesis aims at developing a sizing tool to optimise the wing aerodynamic parameters and material distribution accounting for the aerostructural coupling, and considering stiffness, strength, stability, flutter, durability and damage tolerance requirements in case of isotropic and composite materials. Different levels of fidelity and optimisation strategies will be compared in term of accuracy and computational cost.
