System Identification Methods for Improving Flutter Flight Test Techniques

Systems Technology Incorporated conducted an investigation for modeling aero-servo-elastic aircraft response based on F-16 limit cycle oscillation data and presented their results at an AIAA Atmospheric Sciences conference. The methodology investigates frequency response of a system using arbitrary input. The method seems promising.  However, I believe that we still need to quantify goodness of fit sufficiently […]
