In this study, the detailed finite element model (FEM) of an unmanned aerial vehicle wing torque box was verified by the experimental modal testing. During the computational studies the free-free boundary conditions were used and the natural frequencies and mode-shapes of the structure were obtained by using the MSC® Software. The results were then compared with the experimentally obtained resonance frequencies and mode-shapes. It was observed that the frequencies were in close agreement having an error within the range of 1.5–3.6%.
