In an aerofoil profile with variable profile adaptation, a rib structure of the aerofoil profile is provided which has rigid regions and flexible regions. The flexible region of a rib has at least three rib elements. The rib elements are articulated to one another in kinematic chain arrangement. Driving means are provided for the introduction of force into a movable part of the flexible region of the rib structure, whereby the movement of at least one other rib element may be activated by a stimulated movement of the rib element.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] An aerofoil profile with variable profile adaptation, comprising:a rib having a substantially rigid region and a flexible region, the flexible region of the rib including at least a first rib element, a second rib element and a third rib element, the rib elements being articulated to one another in a kinematic chain arrangement wherein at least two connecting members link both the second rib element and the third rib element to the first rib element; anddriving means for the introduction of force into the flexible region of th...
