Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics (NNFM) book series (NNFM, volume 78)


The present work is aiming at aerodynamic multi-point, inverse, optimization of airfoils as well as at aeroelastic, multi-disciplinary, optimization of the exposed X31 delta wing. Results are achieved by means of a multi-objective genetic algorithm (GA) utilizing a GUI-supported software being developed in the European-Union funded “FRONTIER” project.
