Abstract : Secondary effects in static aeroelasticity that heretofore have been regarded as negligble include: redistribution of induced drag; dihedral effect under load factor; structural axis rotations in equations of motion; aeroelastic divergence of an unrestrained vehicle; and corrections to measurements on 'rigid' wind tunnel model. The few publications on these topics that have appeared over the years are surveyed on the assumption that secondary effects on earlier designs may have become primary effects of future configurations.
