Aeroelastic analysis of a transonic wing for design of local nonlinear attachments Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper reports on the methods and results of a computational and experimental study of a model transport aircraft wing being designed for wind-tunnel tests in transonic flow. This work was undertaken to support the design of nonlinear energy sinks (NESs), structurally nonlinear local attachments added to improve the stability of the wing by suppressing or preventing limit cycle oscillations (LCOs).
