The importance of Flutter

by Community Manager Community Manager ‎09-01-2015 10:03 AM - edited ‎03-24-2016 07:06 AM

Flutter, a phenomenon that occurs when vibrations in the aircraft match the resonance frequency of the structure, can be a big problem if not correctly dampened. Oscillations can increase in amplitude, leading to serious structural damage or even failure.

 

What happens when you need to flutter test a 525-seat Airbus A380, the largest commercial passenger aircraft in the skies today?

 

The flutter test team has been working closely with Siemens PLM Software experts to improve the alignment between online in-flight analysis occurring in Toulouse and the postprocessing completed in the design center in Airbus Germany.

 

At the end of the Airbus A380 campaign, we got a chance to speak to Jean Roubertier and his team in Toulouse to hear about how highly specialized LMS Test.Lab software provided just the right results.
