oa Interim : Interdisciplinary Journal - Optimal flight trajectories of aircraft with morphing wings

Volume 12, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1684-498X



This paper assesses the possible fuel consumption savings of combined optimization of the flight profile (altitude and velocity) and wing morphing (wing length, taper, and sweep). A standard business jet in an international standard atmosphere is modeled and dynamic programming is used to solve the resulting optimal control problem.
