Abstract

This paper describes the basic characterization and experimental results performed on a 3D-printed wing designed for aeroelastic studies. This effort is part of a collaborative project to exercise the methods and solutions to evaluate the flutter behavior of tail-sitter, swept-wing unmanned aerial vehicle configurations. The structural vibration characterization of the model was conducted based on different techniques that are compared in this study. Initial wind tunnel results from interrogating the model for flutter onset determination are presented to illustrate the follow-on work expected for this testbed.
