Many methods have been used for measuring flutter; the proponents of each method claim theirs is the only proper method. In fact, however, the measurement parameters and equipment are determined by the purpose for measuring the flutter. Purposes are: to describe the effects of the flutter; to compare different transports by -standard- measurements; and to analyze the causes of flutter for design purposes. These purposes are discussed, as are the measurement parameters and equipment appropriate to each purpose.
