In classical theory of elasticity, external loading acting on the body is independent of deformation of the body. But, in aeroelasticity, aerodynamic forces depend on the attitude of the body relative to the flow. Aircraft's are subjected to a range of static loads resulting from equilibrium or steady flight maneuvers such as coordinated level turn, steady pitch and bank rate, steady and level flight. Interaction of these loads with elastic forces of aircraft structure creates some aeroelastic phenomena. In this paper, we have summarized recent developments in the area of aeroelasticity. A numerical approach has been applied for finding divergence speed, a static aeroelastic phenomena, of a typical aircraft. This paper also involves graphical representations of constraints on load factor and bank angle during different steady flight maneuvers taking flexibility into account and comparing it with the value without flexibility. Effect of wing skin thickness, spar web thickness and position of flexural axis of wing on this divergence speed as well as load factor and bank angle has also been observed using MATLAB.
