Aerodynamic shape optimization processes are often used for complex problems that meet single or multi-objective design requirements. The robust aerodynamic shape optimization techniques with a high number of design variables that consider uncertainties have a huge computational burden compared to the traditional aerodynamic shape optimization techniques without considering uncertainties. To overcome this issue, in this study, the proper orthogonal decomposition is integrated with the inductive design exploration method to use for the robust shape optimization of the ONERA M6 wing. The proper orthogonal decomposition method is utilized for reducing the number of design variables of the wing geometry. The cost due to the computational fluid dynamics analysis is mitigated by incorporating the proper orthogonal decomposition with a surrogate modeling technique called the radial basis function. The robust optimization is conducted by the proposed approach based on the inductive design exploration method by accounting for uncertainties of the Mach number in the transonic flow regime. The agreement between the performance predictions of the robust designs and the computational fluid dynamics analysis results showed the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
