The nonlinear characteristics of slender wings have been studied for many years, and the influences of the geometric structural nonlinearity on the postflutter responses of the wing have been received significant attention. In this paper, the effects of the external store on the nonlinear responses of the slender wing will be discussed. Based on the Hodges–Dowell beam model, the dynamical equations of the wing which include the geometric structural nonlinearity and store effects are constructed. The unsteady aerodynamic loading of the wing will be calculated by employing Wagner function and strip theory. The slender body theory is adopted to get the aerodynamic forces of the store. The Galerkin method is used to obtain the state equations of the system and the appropriate mode combination is obtained for the cases studied in this paper. Numerical simulations are given to show that the store spanwise position and the distance between the store mass center and the elastic center of the wing are two important factors which will affect the nonlinear characteristics of the wing. These two parameters will induce the occurrence of quasi-periodic motion and branch structure in bifurcation diagrams to the system. The peak of postflutter response is also related to these parameters and the lower response peak can be obtained when the store mass center is in front of the elastic center. The models and results are helpful to the design procedure of the slender wing with store in the preliminary stage.
