Flutter Free Flight Envelope eXpansion for ecOnomical Performance improvement (FLEXOP) - 2nd stage

  • Marcos, Andres (Principal Investigator)

Project Details

Description

The FLEXOP project is developing groundbreaking multidisciplinary aircraft design capabilities for Europe that will increase competitiveness with emerging markets, particularly in terms of aircraft development costs.

A closer coupling of wing aeroelasticity and flight control systems in the design process opens new opportunities to explore previously unviable designs. Common methods and tools across the disciplines also provide a way to rapidly adapt existing designs into derivative aircraft, at a reduced technological risk (e.g. using control to solve a flutter problem discovered during development).
