  Aeroelasticity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Aeroelasticity is the science which studies the interaction among inertial, elastic, and aerodynamic forces.
Aeroelasticity can be divided in two fields of study: static and dynamic aeroelasticity.
Aeroelasticity involves not just the external aerodynamic loads and the way they change but also the structural, damping and mass characteristics of the aircraft.

 Principles of Aeroelasticity
This hardcover edition of Principles of Aeroelasticity constitutes an attempt to bring order to a group of problems which have coalesced into a distinct and mature subdivision of flight-vehicle engineering.
The authors have formulated a unifying philosophy of the field based on the equations of forced motion of the elastic flight vehicle.
A distinction is made between static and dynamic phenomena, and beyond this the primary classification is by the number of independent space variables required to define the physical system.

 AEROELASTICITY IN NATURE
On the other hand, nature is full of aeroelastic problems - with some very novel interfaces of fluid mechanics and solid mechanics, with dynamics as the adhesive.
While not as aeroelastic-oriented as Hertel's book, there certainly are related principles in it, and its reading is bound to broaden the outlook of even the most experienced engineering student.
He also gives several profound plots (one a log-log plot of weight vs cruising speed of flys to 747's; another - rate of descent vs airspeed; another - wind and airspeed for butterflies, bees, sailplanes, etc.).
