Abstract:

An analytical method was developed for the analysis of static aerothermoelastic behavior in the presence of nonlinear aerodynamic loads and geometrically nonlinear structural behavior. The method was programmed for the IBM 7090 digital computer using FORTRAN coding techniques. A system for the experimental determination of static aerothermoelastic response of nonuniformly heated structures to loadings which are a nonlinear function of wing surface slopes was developed. Results of this experimental program are presented and compared with theoretical predictions. Author
