    Neville, R, Groh, R, Pirrera, A & Schenk, M, 2019, ‘Quasi-static experimental path-following’. in: AIAA Scitech 2019 Forum: Session: Aircraft Structural Design, Test and Analysis. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc. (AIAA)


    An experimental method for path-following around a displacement limit point of a nonlinear structure has been developed. The experimental set-up and method are presented, in which the shallow arch is used as a test case. The experimental data are compared to theoretical predictions and are found to have good agreement.
