Abstract [en]

A fundamental part of aircraft design involves the wing airfoil optimization, establishing an outer shape of the wing which has good aerodynamic performance, good internal volume distribution for fuel and systems and which also serves as an efficient structural member supporting the weight of the aircraft. As for all optimization tasks, the complexity of the problem is directly coupled to the parameterization of the geometry. Of highest relevance are the number of parameters and the number of additional constraints that are required to ensure valid modeling.This paper proposes a parameterization method for two dimensional airfoils, aimed at providing a wide design space, while at the same time keeping the number of parameters low. With 15 parameters defining the wing profile, many of the existing airfoils can be modeled with close tolerance.Several approaches to parameterization of wing profiles can be found in the literature. Airfoils can be described by point clouds as done in most airfoil libraries [1]. The number of parameters is twice as large as the number of points used (x and y coordinates) and in the case of aerodynamic optimization this parameterization will most certainly be not well behaved, since no smoothing function is included and must therefore be added. Other problems may arise for the fact that the airfoils sometimes are defined with too few coordinate points and/or too few decimals, a problem occurring especially with old airfoils. On the other hand, the design space that this kind of parameterization allows representing is extremely large, as any and all shapes can be reproduced, even degenerate ones.
