Abstract

In the present paper, the possibility of optimizing the stiffness of a F1 lower-rear wing, in a shape which satisfies the aerodynamic requirements, by making use of a genetic algorithm was investigated. The aim of the optimization was to find the best laminate stacking sequences in a trade-off between stiffness requirements and weight reduction, without laminate failure due to excessive stress. It was shown that this powerful non-traditional optimization method could contribute to a considerable reduction of the composite wing weight.
