Welcome to the website for Professor Graeme Kennedy’s research group in the School of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Our group’s research is focused both on the development of new methods for structural and multidisciplinary optimization and the application of these methods to structural and multidisciplinary design problems. We have been working on developing and applying novel design optimization algorithms for:

  • Large-scale topology optimization

  • Aeroelastic optimization of flexible aircraft and rotorcraft

  • Aerothermoelastic analysis and optimization of aerospace vehicles

  • Electric motor optimization

  • Optimization of composite structures
