This paper presents the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Fluid Structure Interaction in ANSYS to do vibrational analysis on an aircraft wing in transonic region. A simulation study is conducted on a wing by modelling it in a solid modelling software. Further CFD analysis is performed at different Mach numbers to identify pressure variations at different locations on the wing. Transient structural analysis is carried out to study the variations in displacement of the wing with time. The post processing is done for determining the structural frequency and thereby to establish the flutter boundary in the transonic range. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
