The design of a cruise missile wing is a multidisciplinary work, since the wing has to provide enough aerodynamic forces while being structurally safe. In order to meet the design requirements and achieve a successful design, several parameters of the wing need to be investigated at various flight conditions. In this paper, lift forces and flutter speeds are obtained for different wing geometries, at various altitudes and speeds. The design of experiments is constructed by changing the several variables of the wing to have better understanding of the effect of design parameters. The aerodynamic analyses for predicting the lift force are performed by using FLUENT and the aeroelastic analyses for the determination of the flutter speed are conducted by using ZAERO package programs.
