Abstract:

This is the Final Report of AFOSR Grant F49620-97-1-0414. The objective of this study was to develop a more fundamental understanding of the causes and modifications of limit cycle oscillations and other dynamic and control phenomena arising from nonlinear effects in aeroelastic systems. A combined experimental-theoretical study was pursued to validate and improve our physical understanding and mathematical models for design and analysis to enable flight of aircraft safely and reliably beyond the conventional and traditional flutter boundary.
