Precise modeling has great importance in systems which are designed to work in transonic regions. The scope of current investigation includes numerical simulation of static aeroelastic phenomena of deformable structures in transonic regimes. Transonic flow brings lots of instabilities for aerodynamic systems. These instabilities bring nonlinearity in flow and structure solvers. Due to improvements in numerical methods and also enhancement in computing technologies, computational costs reduced and high-fidelity simulations are more applicable. Simulations in this paper are done in transonic flow (M = 0.96) on the benchmark wing AGARD 445.6. The procedure includes modal analysis, steady flow simulation and investigation of structure’s elastic behavior. At the first phase, the geometry model is validated by modal analysis with regards to comparison of first four natural frequencies and corresponding mode shapes. Then, a loose or staggered coupling is used to analyze aeroelastic behavior of the wing. In each simulation step, imposed pressure on the surfaces of the wing caused by transonic flow regime, deforms the structure. In the results section, a comparison between imposed pressure coefficients in each step with the existing literature and experimental results are reported. Also, pressure coefficients in each steps are calculated and reported. In this investigation by using multiple steps in one-way fluid-structure analysis, deformations are reduced in each step and as a result, the structure reached its static stability point.
