Title: Continuous Dynamic Simulation of Nonlinear Aerodynamics/Nonlinear Structure Interaction (NANSI) for Morphing Vehicles
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA9550-06-C-0070
Award Amount: $99,898.00
 

Abstract:

ZONA Technology proposes in Phase I to develop a general methodology for the assembly of nonlinear reduced order models of the multiple contracting substructures that will likely provide the morphing of future vehicles. In addition it is proposed to extend the existing 2D Gridless-Boundary-Condition Cartesian-Grid (GBCC) to 3D. Finally, these novel developments will be integrated with the existing Boundary Element Method (BEM) solver for grid interfacing between aerodynamic and structural grids. The outcome of the Phase I effort will be a prototypical Nonlinear Aerodynamic and Nonlinear Structural Interface (NANSI) solver for continuously morphing configurations. This NANSI solver will be validated on a folding wing by comparison with existing linear aerodynamic solutions in low speed regimes.
