Grahic Jump Location
Block diagram of aeroelastic system
Grahic Jump Location
Migration of the open-loop aeroelastic poles with flow speed. Instability was predicted where the second mode moved into the right half plane corresponding to 31.5 m/s at 18 Hz.
Grahic Jump Location
Conversion of the ten parameter patch-pair description vector to normalized binary form
Grahic Jump Location
Plot shows contrast in goal convergence between routine with best parent retained and discarded
Grahic Jump Location
Results comparison of four independent optimization runs showing patch placement and associated response plots. The contours around the patches indicate areas of high likelihood for patch construction. The vertical axes correspond to magnitudes of (v/v).

Grahic Jump Location
Predicted open and closed-loop response of the wing in pre-flutter flow (31 m/s) with the selected patch pair
Grahic Jump Location
Closed-loop aeroelastic pole migrations (parameterized by flow velocity), showing a 17 Hz instability at 38.3 m/s.
Grahic Jump Location
Open-loop vs. closed-loop response of wing at 38 m/s with clearly visible harmonics in the uncontrolled case
