In this paper, a rapid deforming technique is developed to generate dynamic, three-dimensional, multi-block, mesh. The second-order Runge-Kutta time-marching method is used to solve the structural equations of motion. A dual-time method and finite volume discretization are applied for the unsteady Euler/Navier-Stokes equations to calculate the aerodynamic forces, in which the physical time step is synchronous with the structural equations of motion. The Spalart-Allmaras turbulence model is adopted for a turbulent flow. Due to mass dissimilarity, exiting in flutter calculations for a compressible flow, methods of variable mass and variable stiffness are developed to calculate the dynamic pressure of flutter at the point of mass similarity, and the flutter characteristics are then obtained in accordance with similarity rule. For completeness, the calculated transonic flutter characteristic results are presented and discussed for a double-wing and an aircraft model.
