Abstract:

Modern high performance aircraft designs tend to employ very thin airfoils having a degree and a distribution of stiffness far from the ideal in consequence, there is a loss of control effectiveness and maneuverability. Moreover, the introduction of the highly forward-swept-wing planform poses a static aeroelastic effect of fundamental importance these effects are felt at model as well as at full scale. This meeting was organized not only to review instances of these problems but to see how successfully modern tools for structural and aeroelastic analysis can be applied. The individual papers of the meeting cover many aspects of static aeroelasticity not only for military aircraft but also for modern transport aircraft. The various papers also address problems and recent progress in wind tunnel model testing, in particular measurement of static deformations on wind tunnel models.
