In this research plan, it is proposed to conclude a project related to an aeroelastic system that suffers the flutter phenomenon, when submitted to the air flow in a wind tunnel. It is intended to construct and assembly a wind tunnel aeroelastic balance composed by a main block and a rigid wing, both previously designed by another student. Moreover, it is also proposed to analyze all the set in the wind tunnel, with consequent acquisition of data and, in parallel, compare the results obtained experimentally with the results from the algebraic formulation, carried out numerically by the first student.
