AER503: Aeroelasticity

Winter Term Tuesday 13:00 - 15:00 Rosebrugh 310; Thursday 13:00 - 15:00 Bahen 1240

Static aeroelastic phenomena are studied, including divergence of slender wings and control reversal. Various methods of solution are considered such as closed form, matrix format iteration and the Raleigh-Ritz approach. A study of vibration and flutter of wings and control surfaces is presented with particular emphasis on those parameters which affect flutter speed.
