This paper presents a combination between the computational structural dynamic and aerodynamic analysis. In present computational model, geometrically exact beam formulation for the structural analysis and finite state dynamic inflow aerodynamics combined with blade element theory are used. The present beam formulation features advantages that displacements, inertial forces, and momenta can be directly extracted and solved simultaneously. Finite state dynamic inflow aerodynamics is used to… CONTINUE READING
