of wings with an attached mass subjected to a follower force”
Elsevier Journal of Sound and Vibrations 323(2009) 148-162.

Work Done:
 Taken General form of Aeroelastic Equations.
 Solving the Equations by Eigenvalue Solution and K-Method in
MATLAB.
 Mass and Flexural axis effect the flutter speed.

## Work Done after 2nd Review:

 Effect of M𝜃̇ for Rigid and Flexible Wing.
 Analysis in Ansys by One-way FSI.
 Flutter speed without damping.
 Flutter Speed Prediction.

[ ]{ ̈ }+ 𝑉[ ] { } + (𝑉 ∗ 𝑉 [ ]+[ ]) { } = { }
𝑎21 𝑎22 𝑞2 𝑏21 𝑏22 𝑞2̇ 𝑐21 𝑐22 0 𝑒22 𝑞2 0

## Assume a solution of the form

𝑞1 𝑞1
{ } = { } 𝑒 𝜆𝑡
𝑞2 𝑞2
and also make sub:

## 𝑎 𝜆2 + 𝑏11 𝑉𝜆 + (𝑐11 + 𝑥)𝑉 2 𝑎12 𝜆2 + 𝑏12 𝑉𝜆 + 𝑐12 𝑉 2

| 11 |=0
𝑎21 𝜆2 + 𝑏21 𝑉𝜆 + 𝑐21 𝑉 2 𝑎22 𝜆2 + 𝑏22 𝑉𝜆 + (𝑐22 + 𝜇𝑥)𝑉 2

## Solving the determinant gives the quartic equation

𝑏4 𝜆4 + 𝑏3 𝜆3 + 𝑏2 𝜆2 + 𝑏1 𝜆 + 𝑏0 = 0

## 𝑏3 = (𝑎11 𝑏22 + 𝑏11 𝑎22 − 𝑎21 𝑏12 − 𝑎12 𝑏21 )𝑉,

𝑏2 = [(𝜇𝑎11 + 𝑎22 )𝑥 + (𝑎11 𝑐22 + 𝑏11 𝑏22 + 𝑐11 𝑎22 − 𝑎21 𝑐12 − 𝑏12 𝑏21 − 𝑐21 𝑎12 )]𝑉 2 = (𝑝1 𝑥 + 𝑝0 )𝑉 2 ,

𝑏1 = [(𝜇𝑏11 + 𝑏22 )𝑥 + (𝑏11 𝑐22 + 𝑐11 𝑏22 − 𝑏21 𝑐12 − 𝑐21 𝑏12 )]𝑉 3 = (𝑞1 𝑥 + 𝑞0 )𝑉 3 ,

## (𝑏4 𝑞12 − 𝑏3 𝑞1 𝑝1 + 𝑏32 𝑟2 )𝑥 2 + (2𝑏4 𝑞1 𝑞0 − 𝑏3 𝑞0 𝑝1 − 𝑏3 𝑞1 𝑝0 + 𝑏32 𝑟1 )𝑥 + (𝑏4 𝑞02 − 𝑏3 𝑞0 𝑝0 + 𝑏32 𝑟0 ) = 0

By solving the about quartic equation we will get two critical flutter speeds
