Aeroelasticity - Fundamentals and Topics on Nonlinear Problems (171034L08) November 12-16, 2018 Overview Aeroelasticity is a challenging field of engineering that deals with fluid-structure interaction problems of elastic bodies surrounded by airflows. Particularly, the interaction of inertial, structural and aerodynamic forces on aircraft, buildings, surface vehicles etc., with the paramount importance on aerospace and automotive industry, the field of aeroelasticity is also relevant on many other parts of general engineering. The content of the lectures cover the mathematical modeling of aeroelastic problems, from basic to industrial applications, special topics on specific fluid-structure modeling, fundamentals on computational tools applied to aeroelastic analysis, and topics on nonlinear aeroelastic problems on aircraft, helicopters, wind turbines, blunt-bodies instabilities, and bridges aeroelasticity.
Objectives The primary objectives of the course are as follows: i. Exposing participants to state of the art in the principles of aeroelasticity and its phenomena: divergence, flutter, dynamic buffeting, vortex and stall induced vibrations. ii. Enlightening the participants to the physical problems involved in the fluid-structure interactions and nonlinear aeroelastic analysis. iii. Providing insight into the industrial applications of aeroelasticity in the fields, like, aerospace, automotive and general engineering. iv. Enhancing the capability of participants to apply the design principles for the fundamental unsteady aerodynamic models: analytical and numerical solutions. v. Providing exposure to practical problems and probable solutions through case studies and tutorials.
