I am pleased to announce the launch of a new open access Special Issue of the MDPI journal Machines dedicated to the “Dynamic Instability Analysis of Aerospace Structures”. Aerospace structures are a combination of light structures used for aircraft and spacecraft, which are generally subject to cyclic loads. Such structures operate in complex conditions that may determine the occurrence of dynamic instability phenomena, such as parametric resonance, structural vibration and aeroelastic flutter. The large amplitude response, resulting from dynamic instability, can have severe consequences for the safety and survivability of the structures and should, therefore, be mitigated and, where possible, avoided. Different technological solutions can be developed by using optimised design, traditional mechanisms or smart materials to overcome the internal resistance and external loads and avoid the instability. However, in some cases, such as when actuating a morphing structure or a blade, controlling dynamic instability might be leveraged for increased system performance.
This Special Issue aims to provide insights into the state of the art of dynamic instability of aerospace structures and to highlight methods and solutions that may be transferrable between various application areas. Contributions on modelling, simulation and experiments are welcomed.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
