Modelling of Adaptive Wing Structures

Obiettivo

An adaptive wing tip concept will be developed to enable controlled wash-in and wash-out
throughout the entire flight envelope. The concept, based upon adaptive stiffness structures
enables control of the aeroelastic deflections, and also facilitates gust load alleviation.
Furthermore, a mathematically based design tool will be developed making use of Reduced Order
Models (ROMs) of the wing structure and aerodynamics such that an inverse approach can be
employed to determine the required sizing of the internal aircraft structure, and also the position
and sizing of any adaptive structural components and actuators. The adaptive structural concept
and the inverse ROM approach will be demonstrated and evaluated on two real-size aircraft test
cases.
