Advanced Flutter Design Techniques 730935

The general characteristics of flutter problems affecting the structural design of both subsonic and supersonic transport aircraft are discussed in relation to configuration constraints resulting from mission performance and environmental impact requirements. Combined analytical and experimental approaches employed in the assessment and solution of these problems are outlined. Included are discussions of the extensive application of automated procedures in the use of high-speed digital computers for flutter analysis and the dependence on highly sophisticated wind tunnel flutter model construction techniques to provide reliable experimental data. Illustrations of the application of design techniques to supersonic and subsonic aircraft are presented.
