Aeroelastic Models Design/Experiment and Correlation with New Theory
Several examples of experimental model designs, wind tunnel tests and correlation with new theory are presented in this chapter. The goal is not only to evaluate a new theory, new computational method or new aeroelastic phonomenon, but also to provide new insights into nonlinear aeroelastic phenomena, flutter, limit cycle oscillation (LCO), gust response and energy harvesting from a large flapping flag response. The experiments are conducted in a standard low speed wind tunnel. Similar experiments in a high speed wind tunnel would be very valuable.
