His early research interests centered on structural dynamics, aeroelasticity, and the development of actively controlled and intelligent structures.
In fact, in spite of a better maneuverability at high AOA (Angle Of Attack), the FSW is characterized by a significant directional instability about the yaw axis, is subject to aeroelasticity issues at the wing tip, and is pretty unstable in stall conditions.
In present work, aerodynamic optimization on the basis of continuous adjoint method including the effect of aeroelasticity is developed using FORTRAN 90, which is for the purpose of the implementation of coupled aerostructural adjoint optimization in the future.
The classical approach used in aeroelasticity for loads and flutter analyses solves the equations of motion in the frequency domain.
A closer coupling of wing aeroelasticity and flight control systems in the design process opens new opportunities to explore previously unviable designs.
They cover the seismic behavior of structures, aeroelasticity, thermo-mechanics and fire resistance, structure-subgrade interaction, optimizing structures, life span and safety, failure and damage to structures, and diagnostics and experimental analysis.
