System identification consists of the development of techniques for model estimation from experimental data, demanding no previous knowledge of the process. Aeroelastic models are directly influence of the benefits of identification techniques, basically because of the difficulties related to the modelling of the coupled aero-and structural dynamics.

A flexible mounting system has been developed for flutter tests with rigid wings in wind tunnel. The two-degree-of-freedom flutter obtained with this experimental system can be described as the combination of structural bending and torsion vibration modes. Active control schemes for flutter suppression, using a trailing edge flap as actuator, can be tested(More)
Aeroelastic instabilities may occur in aircraft surfaces, leading then to failure. Flutter is an aeroelastic instability that results in a self-sustained oscillatory behaviour of the structure. A two-degree-of-freedom flutter can occur with coupling of bending and torsion modes. A flexible mount system has been developed for flutter tests in wind tunnels.(More)
