Status Update

  • STI started ASE model survey document
  • Invited session at Science and Technology Forum next year focused on PAAW

mAEWing1 modeling

  • CFD / CSD model
    • CFD and FEM models complete
    • CM Soft converting format and adding control surfaces
    • Should have CFD / CSD model in the next couple weeks
  • Reduced Order Models
    • Determine number of modes
      • Probably the first 6 modes in each axis
      • Within bandwidth of actuators (10 - 14 Hz) and slightly above
    • Velocity range 20 - 60 knots in 10 knot increments
    • Should be complete in the next 3 - 4 weeks
  • FEM Update
    • mAEWing1 WS1 build, static, and dynamic testing complete
    • Can update mass properties in model
  • Future FEM models should include:
    • Elements for control surfaces
    • Nodes at the sensor locations

mAEWing2

  • VT wing shape optimization progress, will get an update next week
