UNSTEADY AERODYNAMICS OF CAMBERED AIRFOILS AT LOW REYNOLDS NUMBER
AHMED, TAWFIQ; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-2)
Almost all the insects and birds fly at very low Reynolds numbers. Therefore, to design micro air vehicles (MAVs), a study of airfoils and wings at low Reynolds numbers is essential. Unsteady flow behavior at low Reynolds numbers can vary for different airfoils depending on their camber, maximum thickness, or maximum camber position. Numerical simulations of cambered airfoils (NACA 1412, NACA 2412, NACA 3412, NACA 4412) at Re = 1000 are conducted in the current study to understand the camber effect on the u...
Unsteady aerodynamics of a pitching NACA 0012 airfoil at low Reynolds number
Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda (SAGE Publications, 2019-11-01)
The present paper aims to investigate numerically small amplitude oscillation of NACA 0012 airfoil at Re = 1000. The airfoil is sinusoidally pitching around the quarter chord point with 1 degrees pitch amplitude about a mean angle of attack. The computations are performed for mean angles of attack ranging from 0 degrees to 60 degrees and for pitching frequencies of 1 Hz and 4 Hz. The effect of the mean angle of attack and pitching frequency on the instantaneous forces as well as the vortex structure is inve...

Unsteady aerodynamics of stationary/flapping airfoil combination in tandem
Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Ortiz, Ma; Platzer, Max F (null; 1997-01-01)
Unsteady flowfields over a stationary/flapping airfoil combination in tandem are computed using a Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes solver. A single C-type grid is employed and the Happing motion of the trailing airfoil is implemented by deforming the grid in the near vicinity of the trailing airfoil. The unsteady effect of the flapping motion on the upstream airfoil is investigated by varying the location, the flapping amplitude and frequency of the trailing airfoil. Unsteady flowfields arc presented in term...
