DOVER: Methodology Development and Validation of WEight Optimized Stiffeners Run-Out Design for Future Composite Wings

DOVER aims to develop a design optimization tool and methodology. Its purpose is to support the design of innovative and weight-optimized composite panel configurations. As a result, these new designs will provide the panel configurations with capability to improve all areas. In addition, the new panels will be able to improve configuration parameters such as geometries, stacking sequences or anti-peeling fasteners.
