A practical three-dimensional shape optimization for aerodynamic design of a transonic wing has been performed using Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs). Because EAs coupled with aerodynamic function evaluations require enormous computational time, Numerical Wind Tunnel (NWT) located at National Aerospace Laboratory in Japan has been utilized based on the simple master-slave concept. Parallel processing makes EAs a very promising approach for practical aerodynamic design.
