MAE 5933 Aeroelasticity, Spring 2022
Descriptions: This course will cover fundamentals to solve some static and dynamic aeroelastic phenomena including divergence, control surface effectiveness, lift redistribution and flutter. Conventional and modern methods will be explained in this class to solve aeroelastic problems of typical sections, classical models, and recent innovative flight vehicles (TBW, X-56A, etc.).
