Explore Key Concepts and Techniques Associated with Control Configured Elastic AircraftA rapid rise in air travel in the past decade is driving the development of newer, more energy-efficient, and malleable aircraft. Typically lighter and more flexible than the traditional rigid body, this new ideal calls for adaptations to some conventional concep
