E001 - Stiffness and Hinge Release Study (October 2021) (Data underlying the publication: Effect of Wing Stiffness and Folding Wingtip Release Threshold on Gust Loads)



Data set from an aeroelastic wind tunnel study. Five wings with flared folding wingtip, featuring different stiffness properties, are tested in static and dynamic conditions (1-cosine gusts) to assess their gust load alleviation capabilities.

The dataset includes:

Static measurements: 10 seconds (for statistical evaluation) at different angles of attack (AoA) in both free-hinge and locked-hinge conditions.
Dynamic measurements: measurements for 1-cosine gusts at different AoA, gust frequency and hinge release thresholds.
Matlab scripts to read and process the raw data.
