The typical aeroelastic analysis for a complex configuration such as a complete aircraft was done using the aerodynamic results of the wing and the structural modes of a complete aircraft; that is, the aerodynamics of a wing of a complete aircraft is assumed to be not much influenced by the body shape. Nevertheless, the body shape can cause a distortion of aerodynamic pressure on the wing surface and it is necessary to investigate the body effect in flutter analysis. In this reseasrch, MGM inverse design method is applied to include the body effect of a wing-body model which disturbs the pressure distribution on the wing surface.
