An experimental investigation on stall flutter over a vertically mounted rigid finite wing
Keywords:Aeroelasticity, wind tunnel, PTV, Shake-the-box, loads
As stall flutter has relevant engineering implications, such as in blades of wind turbine and HALE (highaltitude long-endurance aircraft). This work presents the experimental investigation of rigid wing setup in a closed-circuit wind tunnel having 2.1 m × 1.5 m test section. The experimental campaign reached stable and symmetrical LCO within the freestream range from 9 m/s up to 14 m/s (1.69 × 105 < Re < 2.63 × 105 ). Two techniques were used for position tracking: one mechatronic and one image-based. The latter used ‘shakethe-box’ method applied to a body, which has proven a successful approach as a non-intrusive tool.
