In this work the aeroelastic behavior of locally resonating periodic structures is investigated. The plate-like wing behavior will be obtained from the Love-Kirchhoff plate model with a finite number of mechanical resonators periodically distributed along its surface and using assumed-modes expansion. The unsteady aerodynamic loads are obtained from the doublet lattice model. By combining the structural and aerodynamic models, the aeroelastic behavior of the wing over a range of airflow speeds is discussed. Frequency response functions due to simultaneous base and flow excitations are calculated from the absence of flow speed to the linear flutter speed of the system without resonators. The effects of bandgap presence on the flutter boundary of the wing are also discussed.
