    Abstract:
    A parametric study of flutter was conducted for an airfoil in inviscid transonic flow. An inviscid computational flow dynamic harmonic balance aerodynamic-Euler-based code was used for the investigation. The computational efficiency of the time-linearized option of the harmonic balance aerodynamic model allows a much more thorough exploration of the parameter range than was previously achieved.
