Several variants of fan blades of a gas turbine engine have been developed using optimization methods with the goal of creating a lightweight design. The fan blades have an initial gas-dynamic shell. Inner space is filled with cells or a lattice-like structure. The projects will expect to produce using the methods of additive manufacturing.
