UAVs are growing in the aviation market and it has arisen the necessity of lighter and low cost project. Considering this, the present work aim is to propose an optimized pre-sizing of a UAV wing spar using genetic algorithm optimization method combined with finite element method analysis, which provides low computation cost.
