Aeroelastic Characterisation of an Innovative Wing Structure Design
The main objectives of this project is to understand the aeroelastic response of the foils with varying stiffness and elasticity. This research will be carried out in City University's Wind Tunnel and the results will be compared to our in-house computational tools. Our technology leads to a number of unique computational challenges which we are also looking to overcome throughout this project.
SaFER: Stall Flutter on conventional and innovative wing structures
The aim of this project is two-fold: firstly, to provide a step change in our understanding of stall cells and stall flutter; secondly, to benchmark a number of 3flex® wing designs against traditional approaches and facilitate its wider use. To this end, we have embarked on an ambitious experimental campaign coupled with a high-fidelity fluid-structure interaction model.
