In recent years there has been a renewed interest in aeroelasticity arising from
high performance aerospace systems, multiple control surface configurations, and
pathologies associated with nonlinear behavior. This course provides a brief
overview of aeroelasticity and examines many new "fronts" currently being
pursued in aeroelasticity that include reduced-order models, integrated
fluid-structural dynamic models, ground vibration testing, wind tunnel tests,
robust flutter identification approaches for wind tunnel and flight test
programs, and aeroservoelasticity. The course will emphasize current practices
in both analytical and experimental approaches within industry and government
labs, as well as advances as pursued by these organizations with the support of university research.
