The International Forum on Aeroelasticity and Structural Dynamics (IFASD) has been the premier technical event for researchers and engineers working in the fields of aeroelasticity and structural dynamics since the first event of 1981. Following the success of the IFASD 2017 held in Como, Italy, the upcoming 2019 event will be held in Savannah, USA.

With so many new aerospace developments happening all over the world and the critical role of aeroelasticity and structural dynamics on their success, IFASD 2019 will provide an excellent opportunity for scientists and engineers from industry, research centers and universities to exchange knowledge and findings from on-going studies and to discuss directions for future research.

Contributions are sought covering all technical areas relating to theoretical, numerical, and experimental aeroelasticity and structural dynamics. The Organizing Committee invites authors to submit abstracts of original work for presentation at the conference particularly on the areas outlined below.


  • Steady/Unsteady Aerodynamics
  • Computational Aeroelasticity
  • Aeroelasticity in Conceptual Aircraft Design
  • Aeroservoelasticity
  • Active Control and Adaptive Structures
  • Dynamic Loads
  • Highly Flexible Aircraft Structures
  • Experimental Methods in Structural Dynamics and Aeroelasticity
  • Reduced Order Modeling
  • Wind Tunnel and Flight Testing
  • Ground Vibration Testing of Aircraft
  • Rotorcraft Aeroelasticity
  • Environmental Dynamics and Aeroelasticity
  • Other Related Topics

The submitted abstract, written in English and containing a minimum of 500 and a maximum of 1500 words, must include sufficient detail to demonstrate the purpose of the paper, the technical background, main objective and any preliminary results to date. It must contain at least three sections: introduction, work description, main objective(s) and/or findings of the final paper and preliminary results.

The selection of papers will be made on the basis of the content of the submitted abstract. Attention will be paid to the following: clarity of abstract, relevance of work, technical importance. All written papers accepted to the Conference will be included in the proceedings and distributed at the forum.
