Article Preview

In this study aeroelastic characteristics of long high aspect ratio wing models with structural nonlinearities in quasi-steady aerodynamics flows are investigated. The studied wing model is a cantilever wing with double bending and torsional vibrations and with large deflection ability in according to Dowell-Hodges wing model. This wing model is valid for long, straight and thin homogeneous isotropic beams. Aerodynamics model is based on quasi-steady aerodynamic which is valid for aerodynamic flows in low velocity and without wake, viscosity and compressibility effects. The effect of different parameters such as mass ratios and stiffness ratios on flutter and divergence velocities and limit cycle oscillation amplitudes are carefully studied.
