Development of Tools and Methods for Characterizing the Impact of Control Surface Free-Play on Flutter

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,984.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Research Institution:
Iowa State University
RI Contact:
May Wu
Abstract:
The aerodynamic performance of aircraft is significantly impacted by the aero-elastic dynamics of its control surfaces. In particular, the dynamics of flutter - an unstable self-excitation of structure due to undesirable coupling of structural flexibility and aerodynamics - has critical impact on… More

Development of Tools and Methods for Characterizing the Impact of Control Surface Free-Play on Flutter

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / STTR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$499,178.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Jerald Vogel, CTO – (515) 290-4633
Research Institution:
Iowa State University
RI Contact:
Laura Carabillo
Abstract:
This STTR is aimed at developing methods and tools to characterize the impact of free-play on control surface flutter and overall stability and performance of the system. A successful completion of this two-phased STTR effort will lead to a modeling, analysis, design, and simulation tool that will… More
