dc.descriptionThis report presents the results obtained in the investigation of a particular method of determining under what conditions or combinations of conditions (aerodynamic, dynamic, and elastic) undamped, destructive oscillations are set up in internally braced wings. The method of attach was developed as the first step toward determining the causes and prevention of dynamic instability of wings or "wing flutter," and was considered necessary in view of the fact that no solution so far existed that could be accepted as a basis for establishing the necessary criteria for judging the stability of specific internally braced wings. It was also decided to attempt to build a piece of apparatus in which the important variables could each be adjusted independently of the others or in combination with any or all of the others.en_US
