Whirl Flutter of Turboprop Aircraft Structures, Second Edition explores the whirl flutter phenomenon, including theoretical, practical, analytical and experimental aspects of the matter. Sections provide a general overview regarding aeroelasticity, discussions on the physical principle and the occurrence of whirl flutter in aerospace practice, and experimental research conducted, especially from the 60s.  Other chapters delve into analytical methods such as basic and advanced linear models, non-linear and CFD based methods, certification issues including regulation requirements, a description of possible certification approaches, and several examples of aircraft certification from aerospace. Finally, a database of relevant books, reports and papers is provided. This updated and expanded second edition covers new chapters including both analytical and experimental aspects of the subject matter.

About the Author

Jiri Cecrdle

Jiří Čečrdle started his professional carrier in 1995 at the Czech Aerospace Research Centre (VZLU) in Prague, Czech Republic. He has been the head of the Workgroup of Aeroelasticity there since 2004. He participated in several projects of Czech aircraft development and certification, and he also works as a Compliance Verification Engineer (CVE) and research project evaluator. His spheres of scientific interest include analytical and experimental dynamics and the aeroelasticity of aircraft structures, as well as aeroelastic optimization and model updating. His whirl flutter-related experience includes aircraft certification issues, the development of analytical tools and methods and the development of the whirl flutter aeroelastic wind tunnel demonstrator.
