Stirling has recently undertaken technical consultancy support to a customer in the far east that demonstrate its niche capabilities and experience. The consultancy level support and analysis has been in the field of aircraft aeroelasticity and structural dynamics for the development of a small agile jet aircraft.
Aeroelastic and structural dynamics analysis is a niche skill which is part of Stirling’s Structural & Fluid Dynamics Capability Group. Stirling provide dynamic aeroelastic analysis services to a number of customers covering both civil and military platforms and have a number of engineers with signatory status with the certification authorities. The analysis covers dynamic flight and ground loads as well as flutter analysis and active aeroelastic control design on research programmes.
Paul Standen, Technical Manager at Stirling commented: “By successfully supporting this work on key programmes of work Stirling are demonstrating their strong background in complex aeroelastic modelling and analysis and enhancing our reputation in our customers country. This opens opportunities to support similar projects with our established Flight Sciences skills”.
