Research Institution

Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi), in collaboration with the Smart Structures Laboratory of the Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center at the University of Maryland (UMD), propose to develop a high-fidelity fluid-structure interaction model that is uniquely suited to morphing wing aeroelastic and response prediction. We propose to produce a flapping wing fluid-structure interaction (FWFSI) analysis method to develop an aeroelastic stability augmentation (AESA) system and response prediction for morphing aircraft. A framework will be constructed by link all necessary components in the FWFSI model and the analytical results will be validated using an existing database of experimental results.
