In aeroelasticity, divergence of wing structures is an important static phenomenon. On the other hand, the free vibration analysis is significant to investigate the dynamic characteristics of the structure. Recently, a comprehensive wing model considering the airfoil shape was established. However, the analysis of tapered wing was still not taken into account so far. In this paper, this model is extended to discuss the tapered composite wings. By employing the Hamilton's principle and following the standard procedure of finite element formulation, an elementwise comprehensive model was developed. Because this model can be applied to both static and dynamic analyses, divergence and free vibration will be studied. In this model, aerodynamic force vector containing the lift and moment of the wings was approximated by the strip theory, which will then lead to a standard eigen-relation for solving the divergence dynamic pressure by neglecting the inertial terms. Besides, this model will also provide another eigen-relation for solving the natural frequencies when all the external forces are eliminated.
