The paper presents numerical results from a novel scheme for the solution of the flow equations in two dimensional domains by an Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian formulation able to cope with deforming and adaptive two dimensional grids without recurring to any explicit interpolation scheme. The method is applied to the investigation of a classical transonic aeroelastic instability phenomenon: the aileron buzz. By resorting to deforming and adaptive grids, the method allows to highlight the dependency of the aeroelastic stability boundaries on the mesh spacing.
