Product Description:

Aeroelastic phenomena arising from the interaction of aerodynamic, elastic and inertia forces, and the loads resulting from flight / ground manoeuvres and gust / turbulence encounters, have a significant influence upon aircraft design. The prediction of aircraft aeroelastic stability, response and loads requires application of a range of interrelated engineering disciplines.

This new textbook introduces the foundations of aeroelasticity and loads for the flexible aircraft, providing an understanding of the main concepts involved and relating them to aircraft behaviour and industrial practice.


* Use of simplified mathematical models to demonstrate key aeroelastic and loads phenomena including flutter, divergence, control effectiveness and the response and loads resulting from flight / ground manoeuvres and gust / turbulence encounters
* Introduction to some up-to-date methodologies for aeroelastics and loads modellingÂ
* Emphasis on the strong link between aeroelasticity and loads
* Provision of MATLAB and SIMULINK programs for the simplified analyses
* Overview of typical industrial practice in meeting certification requirements
