In order to take advantage of the sophisticated features offered by CAD and CAE packages for modeling and analysis during the design process, it is essential to build a bridge assuring a coherent link between these tools. Furthermore, this integration procedure must be automated so as to get rid of the repetitive costing effort. In this paper, a new automated procedure for the CAD/CAE integration, implemented for the parametric design and structural analysis of aircraft wing structures is presented. This procedure is based on the automation capacity available in modern computer aided tools via build-in basic programming languages as well as the capacity of the model data exchange. The geometric and numerical models can be controlled to generate a large variety of possible design cases through parameters introduced beforehand.
