This Paper presents an efficient algorithm for the nonlinear aeroelastic trim analysis of very flexible aircraft described by detailed models. The algorithm is based on a novel inertia relief technique for large displacements and is applicable to fluid–structure iteration frameworks coupling generic structural and aerodynamic solvers, including high-fidelity commercial solvers. The methodology is tested on a low-order model of the University of Michigan’s X-HALE experimental vehicle in order to compare to reference results for a typical steady rectilinear flight condition. Nonlinear aeroelastic trim analyses conducted at different flight speeds show that the proposed approach gives a smooth and fast convergence to the trim solution, which makes it suitable for high-fidelity aeroelastic design of very flexible aircraft.
