conference paper description
Search for safety and high efficiency is the driving force in the aerospace industry. This paper reports on application of a relatively new and very promising evolutionary algorithm SOMA with the intent to answer the question on optimal wing geometry. We describe aerodynamic model of the wing, the evolutionary optimisation process and results we obtained. In this contribution present a modern, high performance global optimisation algorithm applied on real engineering application resulting into a set of evolutionary-designed wings which we developed in cooperation with a leading civil aircraft design bureau and manufacturer.
