Abstract

MUCH reference is made in the aeronautical field to the flutter problem and the subject is receiving the attention of many persons engaged in research, testing, and design. Many aeronautical engineers are well acquainted with some aspect of the problem, and although only a few are concerned with its several phases it is safe to say that all aeronautical men regard it with some degree of interest. It is fitting, therefore, that although it has been adequately treated by many authors from other points of view, a statement be here made summarizing the flutter problem as one of the aeroplane designer. In order that the exact nature of this problem be appreciated it is first necessary that a few of the fundamentals be reviewed.
