Based on the combination of traditional structure and aeroelastic tailoring design, a design method of a new inflatable wing with swept arranged inflatable beams named swept baffled inflatable wing is proposed to realize the improving of aerodynamic and aeroelastic performance. Results show that the swept baffled structure can improve the lift drag ratio and delay the classical flutter.
