    Abstract:
    Presented is a harmonic-balance computational fluid dynamic approach for modeling limit-cycle oscillation behavior of aeroelastic airfoil configurations in a viscous transonic flow. For the NLR 7301 airfoil configuration studied, accounting for viscous effects is shown to significantly influence computed limit-cycle oscillation trends when compared to an inviscid analysis. A methodology for accounting for changes in mean angle of attack during limit-cycle oscillation is also developed.
