The flutter behavior of a supercritical airfoil is investigated using a panel formulation, which solves the subsonic unsteady linearized small-disturbance integral equations. Linear aerodynamic theories provide good predictions for attached moderately subsonic and supersonic flows but break down in the transonic flow conditions due to the nonlinearities inherent in unsteady transonic flow. These nonlinearities dominate the transonic flutter behavior typically resulting in the so-called transonic dip. Time-domain aeroelastic simulations involving Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are computationally very expensive and are not favored when a large number of simulations are required. It is a common practice to correct the unsteady aerodynamics calculated from linear formulations to account for the flow nonlinearities associated with unsteady transonic flows. A Reduced Order Method (ROM) is presented yielding to complex-valued aerodynamic corrections for vibration modes. This ROM is used in linear frequency-domain flutter analyses.
