The unavoidable presence of uncertainties poses several difficulties to the numerical treatment of optimization tasks. In this paper, we discuss a general framework attacking the additional computational complexity of the treatment of uncertainties within optimization problems considering the specific application of optimal aerodynamic design. Appropriate measure of robustness and a proper treatment of constraints to reformulate the underlying deterministic problem are investigated. In order to solve the resulting robust optimization problems, we propose an efficient methodology based on a combination of adaptive uncertainty quantification methods and optimization techniques, in particular generalized one-shot ideas. Numerical results investigating the reliability and efficiency of the proposed method as well as the influence of different robustness measures on the resulting optimized shape will be presented.
