Abstract

We present a medium-fidelity aeroelastic framework for computing intermittently separating 3D flows around slender aero-structures with a significantly reduced computational cost than CFD-based method. In which, we propose a modified 3D vortex panel method with leading-edge separation controlled by the leading-edge suction parameter theory, and demonstrate its incorporation in a coupled aeroelastic solver for the dynamic response of these systems. Numerical verifications and simulations are presented on both attached and separated aeroelastic test cases, demonstrating the capability of the proposed method.
