Design Optimization Methodology for Future Hybrid Wing Structures
A design optimization methodology is presented to design and optimise hybrid wing structures that satisfy strength, fatigue and damage tolerance criteria. The methodology enables the exploration of the design space for Fibre Metal Laminates by finding lay-up solutions that meet all criteria. It reveals the contribution of individual criteria to the obtained design solutions, and it illustrates design improvement potential. This paper demonstrates how computational time can be reduced while maintaining accuracy by considering approximations of evaluation methodologies.
