The design of a cruise missile wing is a multidisciplinary work since the wing has to provide enough aerodynamic forces while being structurally safe. Furthermore, the wing needs to satisfy other considerations such as propulsion, weight, flight performance, sizing for launch platform integration and other measures of merit. In order to meet these design requirements and achieve a successful design, several parameters of the wing need to be investigated at various flight conditions. In this thesis, aeroelastic characteristics of different wing geometries are investigated at various altitudes and speeds. The design of experiments is constructed by changing several variables of the wing systematically to have a better understanding of the effects of design parameters on the aeroelastic characteristics of the wings. Flutter speeds are calculated to examine the aeroelastic characteristics of the wings and the aeroelastic analyses for the determination of the flutter speed are conducted by using ZAERO package program.

Cakici, Ferit; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (EDP Sciences; 2016-03-14)
In this study, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with level flight, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) and mode-changing capability is analysed. The platform design combines both multirotor and fixed-wing (FW) conventional airplane structures and control surfaces; therefore, named as VTOL-FW. The aircraft is modelled using aerodynamical principles and linear models are constructed utilizing small perturbation theory for trim conditions. The proposed method of control includes implementation of multirotor a...
Static and dynamic aeroelastic analysis of a very light Aircraft
Demirer, Halime Gül; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2021-9-10)
Aircraft design processes need to ensure that the aircraft is aeroelastically stable within its operational envelope. This thesis presents an overview of the static aeroelastic, flutter and gust response analysis of a very light aircraft. MSC.FlightLoads and MSC.Nastran are used for aeroelastic modeling and analysis. The methods to be used in the aeroelastic analysis of the VLA are tested on the AGARD 445.6 wing, and the results are in good agreement with the literature. Aeroelastic model corrections such a...
Effect of wing deformation on aerodynamic loads at supersonic speeds
Özkökdemir, Emir; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda (null; 2017-09-22)
Aerodynamic performance of wings is directly related to the flow characteristics and the wing geometry. The change in the wing geometry by external loads such as the temperature gradient formed by aerodynamic heating and the pressure distribution on wing surfaces affect the flow characteristics around the wing. In addition, the change in the flow characteristics affects the structural and the thermal loading on the wing. Therefore, aerodynamic performance for undeformed wing has not the same performance as ...
