  5. 5. Flutter Stirling offers expertise in flutter certification. We cover a full range of capabilities from model build to flutter certification support and clearance for civil and military aircraft. Stirling provides flutter analysis using industry standard tools and our own in-house tool set. We are experienced in helping our customers to clear new aircraft designs and aircraft modifications through EASA, FAA and military standards. Stirling holds CVE status for aircraft flutter clearances under EASA Part 21J. Aeroelastics Flight Control Systems Aerodynamics Structures Aircraft Loads Aircraft Performance
  6. 6. Aircraft Loads Stirling is a recognised industry leader in loads generation for aircraft design. We have provided whole aircraft and component loads for new and modification upgrade programmes, including novel designs. We are experienced in calculating static, dynamic and fatigue loads, covering flight loads in response to gust and manoeuvre, and ground loads resulting from ground manoeuvres, take off and landing. Our engineers have an impressive knowledge of EASA, FAA and military standards – including standards for new and supplemental certification. Stirling holds CVE status for aircraft loads clearances under EASA Part 21J.

  9. 9. Flight Control Systems Flight control has been a core capability from the founding of the company and is the primary basis for our overall control system activities. We have provided flight control system (FCS) analysis and design support to the aerospace industry for over 25 years and are experienced in: • Identification of aircraft design requirements • Modelling of actuation systems • Control law design • Pilot controls • Tuning of control laws • Inclusion of FCS control laws in the loads models • Aeroservoelastic model build • Stability & control and handling qualities Aeroelastics Flight Control Systems Aerodynamics Structures Aircraft Loads Aircraft Performance
  10. 10. Aircraft Performance Stirling has developed a number of specialist in-house tools to calculate performance characteristics for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft. These calculations support concept studies, design and trade-off studies involving: • Take-off and landing • Cruise, climb and descent • Steady manoeuvring • Payload, range and fuel burn • Failure conditions: e.g. one engine inoperative • Parametric studies Aeroelastics Flight Control Systems Aerodynamics Structures Aircraft Loads Aircraft Performance
  11. 11. Contact Us Stirling’s aerospace engineering experience has been built up over many years and we have faced many different engineering challenges presented to us by aircraft manufacturers. The future poses various new environmental challenges such as the need for innovative solutions to achieve greater fuel efficiencies. We will continue to work with our customers, providing solid engineering experience and judgement with the innovative approach Stirling prides itself on, to meet the demands of future aircraft needs. . 11 Bandula Pathinayake Business Manager, Aerospace Engineering +44 (0)117 915 2500 bpathinayake@stirling-dynamics.com www.stirling-dynamics.com © 2008 Stirling Dynamics
