Abstract:

The program to provide technical support leading to a composite wing for an aircraft transonic improvement program included technology investigations to establish the feasibility of aeroelastic synthesis for composite wing structures. Modifications were made to an existing direct Rayleigh-Ritz anisotropic plate analysis procedure and the resulting procedure was compared with the finite element method for the analysis of wing structures and correlated with experimental data. The results of this investigation and a preliminary formulation of an aeroelastic synthesis procedure are documented in this volume for future systems support reference. Author
