Ongoing activities

  • Automatic generation of low-medium fidelity aero-structural models.
  • Fast structural sizing, aeroelastic analysis and optimization.
  • Multi-objective topological optimization of compliant structures for morphing application.
  • Active aeroelastic control, including wind tunnel validation.

Future plans

  • Development of conceptual-preliminary design procedures to analyze non linear highly flexible aircraft
  • Implementation of integrated aero-structural optimization procedures for the optimal design of passively and actively controlled flexible aircraft
  • Design, implementation and experimental validation of morphing devices for transport aircraft based on compliant structures
  • Design, implementation and experimental validation of active devices and strategies for Maneuver and Gust Loads Alleviation
