In this study, dynamic mesh method is implemented on a real coded genetic algorithm to demonstrate gain in computational time as well as in higher performance for optimized parameters. Since the differences developed at each step in geometries of new members are not significant, therefore, it is possible to use dynamic mesh methods for new members. In this work, because the population members are obtained by modifying the pervious ones, each member is considered as one step of geometry-change of a deforming body, for examples, a wing inflating, deflating or cambering.
