Access from EThOS:
Flight flutter testing is a mandatory test performed to demonstrate that prototype aircraft are free from flutter - a violent destructive vibration. Flight flutter testing techniques have advanced a great deal over the last 50 years but the process is still risky, time consuming and costly. Therefore, the demand for reduction in time and cost of the flight test procedure and development of efficient online flutter prediction tools among other related issues is ever-growing. This research has dealt with two of the key issues and the methods developed have been validated successfully on simulated aeroelastic data sets corrupted with various levels and types of noise.
