Two basic issues related to the open/closed loop aeroelasticity of 2-D lifting surfaces in an incompressible flow field are considered in this paper. These concern the subcritical aeroelastic response to external time-dependent excitations, and the flutter instability of actively controlled airfoils involving a delayed feedback control. Results and comparisons regarding the flutter instability obtained via the first Volterra kernel in conjunction with a frequency eigenvalue analysis are presented. In the same context, the implications of the presence of time delays in the feedback control on the instability boundary and aeroelastic response are investigated and pertinent conclusions are supplied.
