Conference paper


Aeroelastic simulation, such as flutter prediction, is an important issue for modern aircraft design. If flutter occurs during flight, it will be lead to disastrous structural failure. So flutter is a catastrophic aeroelastic phenomenon that all flight vehicles must be clear of in their flight envelope.
