Back-action of wind onto wings causes vibrations, endangering the whole structure. By careful choices of geometry, materials and damping, hazardous effects on wind engines, planes, turbines and cars can be avoided. This book gives an overview of aerodynamics and mechanics behind these problems and describes a range of mechanical effects.... more...

The book presents methods of mathematical modeling of vortex wakes of aircraft in flights at high altitudes and close to the ground at take-off-landing regimes. The modeling is based on an extensive application of the method of discrete vortices in aircraft flights at high altitudes and on a conjugation of this method with the integral method of predicting... more...
