In order to save computational time during optimization process we want to know if optimization of simplified model can give us a trend to follow to improve much more complicated model By running optimization process from the most general case an infinite plate containing a hole under a traction loading to more complicated case finite plate containing a hole with traction and pressure loading we obtained results for a simplified model Then we used these results into a more complicated problem By using this approach we optimize an aircraft composite fuselage panel For these optimizations we focused on mechanical part of this system objective is to reduce the stress concentration factor Results obtained with optimization procedure and results from the real model have similar trends Therefor this procedure can be used to save a lot of optimization computational time
