Abstract:

The primary objective of this research is the investigation of a biologically inspired methodology for the automated analysis and optimization of layout design. The problem can be multidisciplinary and involve multiple objectives, and can account for realistic engineering requirements. In aerospace systems development, there is a major gap in the number and types of configurations that are available between the conceptual and detailed design phases of vehicle development. This research introduced a framework which facilitates the availability of a large number of configurations by simultaneously performing size, shape and topology optimization.
