Abstract
COMPOSITE MATERIALS OFFER AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE THE DESIGN OF A NOVEL FOLDING WING FOR GUIDED MISSILES. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL UTILIZE HIGH-STRENGTH COMPOSITES IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF WINGS WHICH, IN THE STOWED POSITION, CAN FLATTEN AND WRAP AROUND THE MISSILE'S FUSELAGE. THE WINGS MUST DEPLOY INTO AN ACCURATELY ALIGNED AND AERODYNAMICALLY EFFICIENT CONFIGURATION. MATHEMATICAL AND PHYSICAL MODELING WILL PROVIDE THE STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS ENSURING THE DESIGN OF A WING THAT HAS THE STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS TO WITHSTAND AERODYNAMIC AND MANEUVERING LOADS. THE OUTCOME OF THIS EFFORT WILL BE THE BASIS FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT WHICH WOULD INCLUDE WIND TUNNEL AND FLIGHT TESTING OF THE PROPOSED FOLDING WING CONCEPT.
