Aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations (LCO) due to aerodynamic non-linearities are usually investigated using coupled fluid-structure interaction simulations in the time domain. These simulations are computationally expensive, especially if a large number of LCO solutions must be computed to study the Hopf bifurcation behaviour in the immediate surrounding of the flutter point. To facilitate such bifurcation parameter studies an adaptation of the well-known p-k flutter analysis method is proposed in this paper. In this frequency domain method, the first harmonic of the motion-induced unsteady aerodynamic forces is no longer assumed to be solely determined by constant-coefficient frequency response functions. Instead, the non-linear dependence on the oscillation amplitudes and the phase angle between the input degrees of freedom is additionally taken into account. Therefore, the first harmonic Fourier components of the aerodynamic forces are sampled and interpolated in advance. The LCO solution is then found iteratively. The proposed amplitude-dependent p-k method (ADePK) is applied to a classic two-degree-of-freedom spring-mounted airfoil system where the non-linear aerodynamic forces are computed from Euler simulations. Fluid-structure interaction simulations are performed for validation of the method. Both methods show good agreement. Furthermore, the ADePK method is shown to be a useful tool to rapidly study structural parameter variations.
