[en] In a previous paper entitled “Flutter Predictions from Flight Flutter Test Data” the authors applied a number of different flutter prediction methods to data from two simulated aeroelastic aircraft models and compared the resulting flutter predictions. The two simulated models were a simple three-degree-of-freedom Hancock wing
model and the Sim-2 model of a generic four-engined civil transport. One of the methods examined in the paper was the Nissim and Gilyard method (NGM). Because of difficulties encountered with the Sim-2 model, the authors failed to apply the NGM successfully to it, and only results for the Hancock model were presented
in the paper. With the aid of Eli Nissim, the authors have now succeeded in applying the method to the Sim-2 model and to obtain quality flutter predictions from it. In this short Comment, the initial problems encountered will be described and then the solutions will be outlined. Finally, flutter predictions for the method will be
presented and compared to the flutter predictions obtained from the other methods by Dimitriadis and Cooper.
