Aeroelasticity: Fluid-Structure Interaction (coupling)
• Aerodynamic loads lead to structural deformation (φ) • Does structural deformation affect the aerodynamic loads?

Wing twist under aerodynamic loads • We can calculate the twist at a given flight condition
• Possibility of Instability? Yes • Large twist at certain airspeed: Divergence – Consider solutions of homogenous equation
– Trivial solution: – Is there a non-trivial solution?
