Design optimization is to find optimum of design space which is defined by design variables, using optimization algorithm. Recently, numerical design optimization including computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been focused in not only aerospace engineering, but general engineering field because of many research and development for high performance computing. However it could hardly find the design optimization softwares and contents of which educational or research purposes in aerospace engineering. In this study, as one framework of EDISON DESIGN OPTIMIZATION, aerodynamic design optimization framework for an airfoil based on EDISON (EDucation-research Integration through Simulation On the Net) portal. As well as the softwares development, essential contents are also developed for the lecture associated with design optimization in the aerospace engineering. Software and contents on aerodynamic design optimization could be expected to be assisted in the lecture or lab..
