To alleviate these problems, aircraft designers attempt to control the load distribution over the wing by using adaptive wing elements. Investigations in the project AWIATOR showed that the use of mini-TEDS (small flaps with a length of approximately 2% of the chord length) can improve the lift and, in some flight conditions, also reduce the drag (Figure 1). Additionally, these small and swiftly-deployable elements can achieve relatively large load redistributions. These mini-TEDs also cause a twisting moment on the wing. In AWIATOR, the simplified modelling ignored the drag increases due to the additional trim required and due to the aeroelastic deformation of the wing when mini-TEDs are deployed. The inclusion of these additional variables, and a comparison of the load-redistribution effects of mini-TEDs and the flaps of the high-lift system are the basis for the work package LAWIA.
