CFD Analysis Of An RC Aircraft Wing

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis of an aircraft plays a vital role in providing an ideal design of the aircraft. The qualitative and quantitative characterization of the wing provides useful information to verify the wing selection and design prior to the time consuming fabrication of aircraft. A designed wing geometry was analyzed and modified; further analysis was carried out on the modified wing for a comparative study. Thus giving a clear comparative view of how minute changes affect the flow characteristics of the aircraft. For this very purpose, a virtual wind tunnel model was created and CFD analysis was carried out at various angle of attacks for each wing separately. The lift, drag, stall angle and lift-to-drag ratio of each wing were determined and the comparative study of these showed how minute changes to the wing improves its overall flow characteristics.
