aeroelastic tailoring

A design technique for aerodynamic surfaces in which the strength and stiffness is matched with the likely aerodynamic loads that may be imposed on it.
Two examples of aeroelastic tailoring. In the case on the top composite wing structures are used to meet the needs of forward swept wing. In the case at the bottom variable camber is used on the leading and trailing edges of the wing to overcome twisting and deformation of the wing during maneuvers.
