Aeroelasticity at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is the interaction between structural dynamics and unsteady aerodynamic flow over the structure. It is an important area of study for two main reasons. First the interaction can lead to static or dynamic instabilities which can result in failure of the structure.


Key facts

Aeroelasticity at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)  has a significant influence on the design and weight of the structure, and its aerodynamic performance. Therefore it is important to take aeroelastic effects into account in the design of structures.

In this course you will learn:

  • about the physical processes which drive aeroelastic phenomena
  • to formulate and solve aeroelastic response and instability problems
  • to identify strengths and weaknesses of different aerodynamic and structural models for the analysis of a given aeroelastic condition
  • to be familiar with the role of aeroelasticity in aircraft design
  • to be able to carry out aeroelastic calculations using software

Programme Structure

The breakdown of the course is:
  • aeroelasticity and aeroelastic phenomena
  • illustration of aeroelastic phenomena using simplified aerodynamic and structural models
  • subsonic and supersonic aerodynamic models for aeroelastic analysis
  • structural models for aeroelastic analysis
  • aeroelastic response to arbitrary excitation
  • aeroelastic models in state-space format
  • nonlinear aeroelasticity
  • aeroelastic control
  • aeroelastic aspects in the design of aircraft
  • numerical aeroelastic calculations using software
