This paper aims to evaluate the benefit of strut-braced wing configuration in a multidisciplinary way considering both aerodynamic and structure. Couples of structure topologies of strut, such as compressive-inactive strut and jury strut, will be evaluated and compared to maximize the benefit of strut-braced wing configuration.
