A CFD-based aeroelastic system (such as the FUN3D code) consists of the coupling of a nonlinear unsteady aerodynamic system (ow solver) with a linear structural system as depicted in Figure 1.

Traditional CFD-based aeroelastic analyses are performed via iterations between the nonlinear unsteady aerodynamic system and the linear structural by: 8. Aeroelastic effects can be static, such as the upward deflection of a wing under the influence of lift, or dynamic.

In the static case, the aerodynamic for cause the structure to deform. If the structure is very flexible this can cause a stability problem: the deformation causes an increases of the aerodynamic load, that will in turn increases.
