A design approach is described that considers the design of aircraft wing structures that incorporate morphing devices. The methodology is generic rather than device specific, and determines the best distribution of morphing concept that enables minimisation of weight for minimum morphing application across the design flight envelope. Examples of the approach are described using a regional jet aircraft configuration. As well as determining the morphing requirements, the effect of uncertainty in both the aircraft structure and aerodynamic on the design process is also considered.
