Abstract

Flight flutter testing is the process of envelope expansion that determines a range of flight conditions within which an aircraft is safe from aeroelastic instabilities. This testing, which must be done for new and reconfigured aircraft, incurs dramatic time and costs because of the danger associated with encountering unpredicted instabilities. A particular concern is the onset of explosive flutter that is characterized by a sudden loss of stability between test points despite only a small change in flight conditions [13].
