In this study, analysis and results of linear and nonlinear aeroelastic of a cantilever beam subjected to the airflow as a model of a high aspect ratio wing are presented. A third-order nonlinear beam model is used as structural model to take into account the effects of geometric structural nonlinearities. In order to model aerodynamic loads, Wagner state-space model has been used. Galerkin method is implemented to solve dynamic perturbation equations about a nonlinear static equilibrium state. The small perturbation flutter boundary is determined by these perturbation equations. The effect of geometric structural nonlinearity of the beam model on the flutter behavior is significant. As it is observed the system’s response to upper speed of flutter goes to limit cycle oscillations and also the oscillations lose periodicity and become chaotic.
