Abstract : The MOL Panel Flutter Model M207 is a 50% scale model of the Laboratory Module of the MOL Orbiting Vehicle. Basically the model consists of a sting supported thick walled hollow duct assembly which forms the base upon which the dynamically scaled meteoroid shield skin assembly and various protuberances are mounted. The purpose of the test is to determine whether the entire meteoroid shield of the MOL Laboratory vehicle is free of destructive flutter in the flight environment. (Author)
