The inclusion of static aeroelastic effects is essential to the accurate calculation of the aerodynamic properties of a wing, the resulting wing loads, and ultimately the mass of the wing. Within an industrial aircraft design cycle, the computational time required for structurally coupled nonlinear flow solvers is impractical for the many different solutions required, even with the current development in computing power. The process currently used by most civilian aircraft manufacturers therefore makes use of time efficient linear panel methods for calculating the aerodynamics and modal data for calculating structural movements.University of Bristol.
