Experimental unsteady pressures at flutter on the Supercritical Wing Benchmark ModelThis paper describes selected results from the flutter testing of the Supercritical Wing (SW) model. This model is a rigid semispan wing having a rectangular planform and a supercritical airfoil shape. The model was flutter tested in the Langley Transonic Dynamics Tunnel (TDT) as part of the Benchmark Models Program, a multi-year wind tunnel activity currently being conducted by the Structural Dynamics Division of NASA Langley Research Center. The primary objective of this program is to assist in the development and evaluation of aeroelastic computational fluid dynamics codes. The SW is the second of a series of three similar models which are designed to be flutter tested in the TDT on a flexible mount known as the Pitch and Plunge Apparatus. Data sets acquired with these models, including simultaneous unsteady surface pressures and model response data, are meant to be used for correlation with analytical codes. Presented in this report are experimental flutter boundaries and corresponding steady and unsteady pressure distribution data acquired over two model chords located at the 60 and 95 percent span stations.
