Not Available Austral Engineering and Software, Inc. proposes to develop a methodology and computer tool that uses experimental data to create high-fidelity models for unsteady aerodynamic loading. This approach addresses the need for advanced models that accurately represent loading responses of air vehicles under varied flight conditions. This is particularly important for cost-effective develo ...SBIR Phase I 1999 Department of Transportation
