  abstract =     "Traditional CAD tools generate a static solution to a
                 design problem. Parametric systems allow the user to
                 explore many variations on that design theme. Such
                 systems make the computer a generative design tool and
                 are already used extensively as a rapid prototyping
                 technique in architecture and aeronautics. Combining a
                 design generation tool with an evolutionary algorithm
                 provides a methodology for optimising designs. This
                 works uses NASA's parametric aircraft design tool
                 (OpenVSP) and an evolutionary algorithm to evolve a
                 range of aircraft that maximise lift and reduce drag
                 while remaining within the framework of the original
                 design. Our approach allows the designer to
                 automatically optimise their chosen design and to
                 generate models with improved aerodynamic efficiency.",
