The aim of this paper is to compare and validate two computational methods to study typical aircrafts aeroelastic problems. The first one is the very well-established 2-way coupling approach, which envisages the use of a mesh morphing tool to update the CFD mesh according to the computed displacements in combination with a mapping algorithm to transfer the loads onto the FEM mesh. The second one is based on the embedding of structural modes, computed in advance by a FEM solver, directly into the CFD solver. It requires a morphing tool to deform the CFD mesh according to FEA computed modal shapes and a surface integration algorithm that allows to evaluate the modal forces acting on the CFD mesh. Modes embedding makes the CFD model intrinsically aeroelastic and thus capable to self-adapt its shape in the respect of the actual deformation, removing all the complexities related to the data exchange between solvers. Both methods were validated against a literature benchmark test case consisting in the prediction of the static aeroelastic equilibrium of the HIRENASD model using two of the meshes available in the “NASA First Aeroelasticity Workshop” database. The fidelity of both methods has been successfully validated, achieving a satisfactory agreement with experimental data. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020.
