Students in ‘Introduction to aeroelasticity and its applications in renewable energy technology’ should download the course syllabus and handouts from this link.

Class exercises can be downloaded here. Exercise 2 and Exercise 3.

A past paper example (and accompanying formula sheet) is available for download from this link.

Students are expected to bring printed copies of relevant handouts to class. Please check the course schedule in the course syllabus document.

MEE556 Aeroelasticity Coursework

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Students can download the following MATLAB m-file for use in the coursework.

Flapping angle MATLAB m-file

Each group must study the flapping stability of a wind turbine blade by analysing the parameter such as the wind speed and the blade natural frequency. A bifurcation diagram should be produced by the end of the project and critical events must be pointed out. The types of steady states we expect to see are stable fixed point, limit cycle oscillations, and divergence.

The coursework is to be submitted by 5PM of Friday 16 October 2009.

Lecture Log MEE556-03

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

We finished the lecture on divergence of a lifting surface today. The class example was a uniform wing under torsional load.

This week’s homework can be downloaded here. Aeroelasticity Exercise 3: Divergence of a wing.

Lecture Log MEE556-02

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

We completed the chapter on control reversal. The class example was a 2D 2-DOF aerofoil (pitch and aileron) model. Derivation of reversal dynamic pressure and speed was shown. Finally, we discussed aileron effectiveness and the relationships between reversal dynamic pressure and divergence dynamic pressure.

Homework for this week can be downloaded here. Aeroelasticity Exercise 2: Control Reversal.

Lecture Log MEE556-01

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

This one too. First lecture on aeroelasticity on Tuesday 02/06/09. We covered the following topics

  • Introduction of aeroelasticity – what is this subject all about
  • Description of static aeroelasticity and its applications, ie. divergence and control reversal
  • Basic technical terms in the field of aeronautics

It was still too early for any homework. Should any student have any question, please add them to the comments that follow.
