VIRTUAL AIRCRAFT MODEL FOR AEROELASTIC SIMULATION AND LOAD PREDICTION OF A HIGH ASPECT RATIO COMPOSITE SWEPT WING

A. Hermanutz╣, M. Hornung╣; ╣Technical University of Munich, Germany

To investigate the aircraft behavior including elastic effects, an aeroelastic virtual aircraft model of a civil transport aircraft with model reduction methods for load prediction is presented. In different transient flight maneuvers, critical load conditions are identified and used for detailed structural sizing.
