    Abstract:
    Presented is a frequency-domain harmonic-balance (HB) computational fluid dynamic (CFD) approach for modeling flutter onset and limit cycle oscillation (LCO) behavior of viscous transonic aeroelastic wing configurations. The AGARD 445.6 transonic wing configuration is studied and results are compared to a recent inviscid analysis for a supersonic Mach number flow condition.
