Aeroelastic Analysis

Aeroelastic analysis is the study of the deflection of flexible aircraft structures under aerodynamic loads, wherein the deformation of aircraft structures in turn affect the airflow.

An overview of Aeroelasticity, a version of the aeroelastic triangle, is illustrated here.

Figure 1. Aeroelasticity Overview

The interaction between Elastic forces and Aerodynamic forces can be analyzed, as part of the Static Aeroelasticity solution.
