Lech Żurkowski, Marian Grudnicki, Wiesław Krzymień, Zbigniew Lorenc

In the paper the results of preliminary tests are presented of an elastic airplane model elastically suspended in a wind tunnel for flutter testing. A simple theoretical physical model enabled the authors to determine instability areas of the model suspension. Then some results of experimental determination of amplitude and damping of the model vibrations are given versus the air flow speed in the wind tunnel.
