Abstract:

When studying stability of an aircraft, a quasi-steady aerodynamic model is often used. In this study, the results of a stability analysis of an unrestrained flexible forward swept wing aircraft using an unsteady aerodynamic formulation are compared to results obtained with a similar, but quasi-steady, aerodynamic formulation. In addition, the potential effects of wing tip stores on forward swept wing aircraft stability are explored. Author
