Lamination Optimization of Composite Curved Wing for Maximum Flutter Stability Using Micro Genetic Algorithm
Flutter characteristics of composite curved wing are investigated in this study. The efficient and robust computational system for the flutter optimization has been developed using the coupled computational method based on the micro genetic algorithms. The present results show that the micro genetic algorithm is very efficient in order to find optimized lay-ups for a composite curved wing model. It is found that the flutter stability of curved wing model can be significantly increased using composite materials with proper optimum lamination design when compared to the case of isotropic wing model under the same weight condition.
