Modelling of Adaptive Wing Structures (MAWS)
Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Jul 31, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"An adaptive wing tip concept will be developed to enable controlled wash-in and wash-outthroughout the entire flight envelope. The concept, based upon adaptive stiffness structuresenables control of the aeroelastic deflections, and also facilitates gust load alleviation.Furthermore, a mathematically based design tool will be developed making use of Reduced OrderModels (ROMs) of the wing structure and aerodynamics such that an inverse approach can beemployed to determine the required sizing of the internal aircraft structure, and also the positionand sizing of any adaptive structural components and actuators. The adaptive structural conceptand the inverse ROM approach will be demonstrated and evaluated on two real-size aircraft testcases."
