Abstract [en]

This paper introduces a new technique for robust aeroelastic analysis that extends standard linear flutter analysis to take deterministic uncertainty and variation into account. The basic principle of the proposed mu-p method is to exploit structured-singular-value (or mu) analysis to investigate if the system uncertainties can make the flutter determinant zero for a given flutter eigenvalue p. This makes it possible to compute regions of feasible eigenvalues in the complex plane as well as extreme eigenvalues that can be used to predict damping bounds and perform robust flutter analysis. The capability to predict damping bounds at subcritical flight conditions is a very attractive feature of the new method, as flight testing is rarely taken to the flutter point. The A-p formulation also opens up new possibilities to bound the magnitude of the system uncertainties based on frequency and/or damping estimates from flight testing. In the final part of the paper, the mu-p framework is successfully applied to perform robust aeroelastic analysis of a low-speed wind-tunnel model.
