Executive Summary

The customer is a global market leader in the supply of actuation systems providing primary and secondary flight control actuation systems for more than 75% of all wide and narrow body jet airliner programs, including all current Airbus models. The customer wanted a solution to optimize a wing spoiler to reduce excessive aircraft weight. To analytically minimize the structural weight of the spoiler, with and without the effect of wing bending; to understand the behavior of existing structure under various load cases and to achieve the same behavior for new structure at lower weight and weight optimization. The initial design variables were 14, which finally culminated into 33 design variables.
