Aeroelastic stability of a wing with bracing struts (Keldysh problem)

  • A. A. Mailybaev
  • A. P. Seiranyan


The problem of the influence of bracing struts of two types on the aeroelastic stability of a wing is studied. The formulation of the problem follows that considered by M. V. Keldysh [1]. The behavior of the eigenvalues is studied in the complex plane and the stability, flutter, and divergence domains are constructed.
