Flight Flutter Test Techniques at ARL

  title={Flight Flutter Test Techniques at ARL},
  author={Paul A. Farrell and Thomas G. Ryall},
Abstract : Good design of an aircraft ensures that its flutter speed lies beyond its maximum operating speed; however, modification of the aircraft, such as the attachment of external stores to the wings, can lower the flutter speed significantly. In this case it may be necessary to determine experimentally the new flutter speed by means of a series of flight flutter trials. During such trails the aircraft is excited in flight and the measured response analysed to obtain estimates of the… CONTINUE READING
