William Alves, Juliana Silva: 3655. Weight and Structural Optimization in Aircraft Design. 2016.



Given the competitiveness of the current market, there is a growing movement in the sense of increase the efficiency of aeronautical product in an appropriate life cycle for airliners needs.
In the context of aeronautical structures, the challenge is to increase structural efficiency within the number of cycles required for life in service, meeting reliability requirements and loads, without losing sight of the dynamic performance of structural components.
This article is intended to present the main structural optimization techniques and estimating the gains made at various stages of development of the aircraft design.
