Within the scope of the "DLR - ONERA Partnership in Transport Aircraft Research", a common research program (CRP) called FIGURE - Flexible Wind Gust Response - was launched to investigate means of passive load control in the transonic regime. To this end, two aeroelastic tailoring methodologies, independently developed at ONERA and DLR, were applied to a common model geometry. A choice was made in favor of the publicly available NASA Common Research Model (CRM) wing, featuring a comprehensive database with respect to geometry, as well as analytical and experimental research results. The span of the wing half to be investigated was set to 0.55 m, limited by the test section dimensions. While wind tunnel testing was part of ONERA's workshare, the model building was performed by DLR. This report at hand focusses on the structural, aeroelastic optimization of the DLR wing. It is based on an optimization framework developed and constantly being enhanced and extended at the DLR - Institute of Aeroelasticity (DLR-AE). The report describes the consideration of different structural objective functions, structural and aeroelastic constraint combinations, design field considerations, as well as the application of an aero load correction applied in the course of the optimization. The final results consist of the selection of an appropriate fiber type, optimized fiber layers represented as stacking sequence tables for the upper and lower wing skins, and the corresponding optimized jig twist distribution, required for manufacturing the lamination molds; in summary, all data required to start the construction of the wind tunnel model.
