Abstract : In view of the ever increasing performance of modern aircraft, wing safety must be improved, without any weight penalty, through devices permitting the suppression of critical flutter speeds, on the one hand, and, on the other, the alleviation of maneuver or gust induced loads. Such devices are always active systems based on the feed-back principle. The present AGARDograph collect, in a single volume, several papers on this theme presented on the occasion of a specialists' meeting organized in The Hague in October 1973 under the joint sponsorship of two separate working groups of the AGARD Structures and Materials Panel: one of these groups deals with the interactions and maneuverability of aircraft in flight, the other with aeroelasticity and unsteady aerodynamics.
