    • Component Modal Analysis of a Folding Wing 

      Wang, Ivan (2011)
      This thesis explores the aeroelastic stability of a folding wing with an arbitrary number of wing segments. Simplifying assumptions are made such that it is possible to derive the equations of motion analytically. First, ...
    • Linear Aeroelastic Stability of Beams and Plates in Three-Dimensional Flow 

      Gibbs IV, Samuel Chad (2012)
      The aeroelastic stability of beams and plates in three-dimensional flows is explored as the elastic and aerodynamic parameters are varied. First principal energy methods are used to derive the structural equations of motion. ...
