The aeroelastic wind tunnel model named AE1 represents a constant Froude scaled model of the strut-braced wing configuration including both wing and structure. It is conceived for the preliminary low speed flutter investigations and for a limited number of sensitivity analysis. The model has been conceived by ONERA, POLIMI and IBK, while the mechanical design was in charge of IBK. The model has been delivered to POLIMI last April 18, 2023. The following movies show the CAD model as well some images taken during the manufacturing phase
