Transition from the classical aeroelasticity based on the linear aerodynamic equations to the computational aeroelastcity based on the computational fluid dynamics using the non-linear aerodynamic equations began in mid 70s. Classical aeroelastcity which is less computer intensive is still progressing towards use in the preliminary design for more complex configurations. Leveraging from the rapid advances in high performance computers, computational aeroelasticity which focuses on accuracy by overcoming the limitations of the linear aerodynamic theory is growing on-par with the classical aeroelasticity. Present symposium addresses progress to date in both classical and computational aeroelasticity.
