Abstract : During the grant year several studies have been undertaken. These are reported fully in References 1, 2, and 3. A summary of the technical highlights follows. An extended nonlinear indicial approach to modeling nonlinear aerodynamic forces for aeroelastic analyses has been developed. The basic approach is based upon describing function ideas. (Author)
