Abstract:

Recent development of a smart structures module and its successful integration with a multidisciplinary design optimization software ASTROS and an Aeroservoelasticity ASE module is presented. Application examples have been worked out to demonstrate the integrated software capability. These include the neural net based active flutter suppression of a modeled F-16 wing using piezoelectricPZT actuators the gust-load alleviation of a modeled F-l8 aircraft using control surfaces and trim drag reduction of TOMAHAWK withwithout battle damage using PZT actuators.
