Abstract

We propose the demonstration of a novel aeroservoelastic scaled model design, optimization, and fabrication approach combining aeroservoelastic scaling with a combined topology/sizing optimization to match the target structural dynamic and aeroelastic behavior.  Fabrication is using 3D printing techniques (metal and plastic/elastomer), along with automated electronic assembly techniques for in-situ instrumentation.  A scaled model will be designed, fabricated, and tested in a low speed wind tunnel during Phase I to demonstrate the feasibility of dramatically reducing the cost of aeroservoelastic model tests.
