Continuum Sensitivity Method for Nonlinear Dynamic Aeroelasticity
(Virginia Tech, 2013-06-28)
In this dissertation, a continuum sensitivity method is developed for efficient and accurate computation of design derivatives for nonlinear aeroelastic structures subject to transient<br />aerodynamic loads. The continuum ...
A Hybrid Optimization Framework with POD-based Order Reduction and Design-Space Evolution Scheme
(Virginia Tech, 2013-05-29)
The main objective of this research is to develop an innovative multi-fidelity multi-disciplinary design, analysis and optimization suite that integrates certain solution generation codes and newly developed innovative ...
Modeling and Scaling of a Flexible Subscale Aircraft for Flight Control Development and Testing in the Presence of Aeroservoelastic Interactions
(Virginia Tech, 2013-09-18)
The interaction of an aircraft's structure and the flight dynamics can degrade the performance of a controller designed only considering the rigid body flight dynamics. These concerns are greater for the next generation ...
