Triton A500 Composite Flaps and Ailerons

This project started by a request from Triton Aerospace LLC.

To optimize the weight of originally metal A500 (formerly Adam A500) structures the company decided to verify weight reduction due to application of composites.
The project implied finite element modeling of composite inboard and outboard sections of the flap and aileron and run their preliminary structural FE analysis. The FEA included both linear and nonlinear analyses.
