The dynamics of an aeroelastic system composed of a panel forced by unsteady buffeting aerodynamic loads is investigated numerically. The focus is on detecting parametric changes in the system. The upstream end point of the panel is considered supported by a spring of variable stiffness. Changes of in the stiffness of the spring are detected by exploring the chaotic dynamics of the panel.
