Abstract : A computer program was coded to obtain static aeroelastic effects on simple planforms through the use of subsonic lifting surface theory. The program was divided into two major technical areas, aerodynamic and structural, with matrix notation used to indicate the influence of each in the final aerodynamic loading distribution. Several typical stability derivatives were then obtained to make an accurate stability and control analysis on the desired planform. (Author)
