Abstract
A numerical simulation method for the flight dynamic response of the elastic aircraft flying through the wind field over complex terrain is developed in this paper. The complex terrain model is established by the spline method based on the contour line of the map. The wind field is then simulated by the vortex lattice method in potential flow theory. Furthermore, the effects on the aerodynamic characteristics of the aircraft that induced by the structural flexibility and the wind velocity gradients are also considered. A numerical example is studied, and the result indicates that the structural flexibility would have a great influence on the dynamic response, when the aircraft flying through a complex wind field.
