Modeling and Predicting Flutter of Damaged Wing

This project was performed for the 46th Test Wing with funding provided by the Joint Technical Coordinating Group for Aircraft Survivability (JTCG/AS), Vulnerability Reduction Subgroup.

Damage to aircraft wings is a very dynamic event. The dynamics of a wing’s response is a function of mass distributions, stiffness distributions, and loadings on the wing. These distributions can change when damage is inflicted thus changing the flutter characteristics of the wing.
