The process of designing an aircraft is generally divided in three phases, namely the conceptual, preliminary and detailed. The whole process is one that involves various disciplines and is subject to multiple constraints. Traditionally the different aspects of the design process are tackled separately by different departments within a company....

This paper discusses the effects of the aerodynamic model on the design of a composite wing via aeroelastic tailoring. The classic framework for analysis and optimization of composite wings developed at Delft University of Technology adopts panel method aerodynamics to calculate static and dynamic loads. The current work expands the...

This paper presents a unified framework for aeroelastic tailoring of fully-flexible free-flying composite aircraft. A continuous-time state-space model is used to describe the flow. The 3D composite wing structure is condensed into a Timoshenko beam model utiliz-ing a cross-sectional modeler. The aerodynamic and structural models are tightly...

This paper presents a unified framework for aeroelastic tailoring of free-flying aircraft with composite wings. A continuous-time state-space model is used to describe the flow. The 3D composite wing structures is condensed into a Timoshenko beam model by means of a cross-sectional modeler. The aerodynamic and structural models are closely...

The present work thus develops a low-fidelity formulation to investigate the flight dynamic stability of a flexible wing structure. The model is verified against other studies found in the relevant literature, which show interesting trends in terms of how some of the design variables or flight conditions influence the stability of the structure.
