Wings or fins are exposed to a variety of loading during fight at supersonic and hypersonic regime. Thermal loading is one of the most important loading type is highly effective on the structure of wings/fins. Temperature gradient formed by thermal loading may cause deformation on the wings/fins. Structural integrity of wings/fins under thermal loading as aerodynamic heating were investigated in this work. NACA 0012 airfoil profile was selected as two dimensional analysis models. A set of analysis includes computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis part and finite element (FE) analysis part had done and results were compared with the test data from literature. The current study aims to obtain deformation rates of fins exposed to the high temperatures. The heat transfer coefficient and static temperature on the airfoil in addition to the pressure distribution result a deformation on the airfoil. This deformation is calculated by use as a commercial finite element code. © 2016 9th International Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics, ICCFD 2016 - Proceedings. All rights reserved.

Süpersonik rejimde uçan kanatlar çeşitli yüklemelere maruz kalırlar. Bu yükleme tiplerinden biri olan termal yüklemeler, kanatların tasarımı üzerinde oldukça etkilidir, bu nedenle büyük öneme sahiptir. Termal yükleme kaynaklı oluşan termal gradyan kanatlar üzerinde yapısal bozulmalara yol açabilir. Bu çalışmanın amacı aerodinamik ısınma gibi termal yüklemelere maruz kalan kanatların yapısal bütünlüğü incelenmesidir. 2 boyutlu olarak yapılan karşılaştırma analizleri için literatürde bul...
Investigation of the flexible missile fins under aerothermal loadings
Özkökdemir, Emir; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2018)
Wings or fins on the body flying at the supersonic speed are subjected to the aerothermal loading. These loads are categorized into two main groups; aerodynamic pressure and aerodynamic heating. They affect the strength of wings. In this thesis study, a flexible NACA 65-009 wing of a missile flying at supersonic speed is investigated. It is studied to define the effect of the change in wing geometry by the external loads on the flow characteristics. The flow simulations are carried on Ansys Fluent that uses...
Development and implementation of novel flow control techniques for nonslender delta wings
Çelik, Alper; Yavuz, Mehmet Metin; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
Understanding and controlling the physical phenomenon behind the aerodynamics of low to moderate swept delta wings has been a challenge for researchers during the last few decades, which is stimulated by their widespread use in unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAVs) and micro air vehicles (MAVs). Although delta wings are capable of generating high lift and stable flight performance at high angle of attack, the problems related to lack of conventional flow control surfaces compel the researchers to explore new...
Parametric investigation of hull shaped fuselage for an amphibious UAV
Sazak, Emre; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda (null; 2016-07-15)
Performance of amphibious UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) that take off from and land on water, like seaplanes, greatly depend on hydrodynamic effects as well as aerodynamic effects, therefore their geometries need to be optimized. This study mainly investigates the effect of geometric parameters of a generic, hull-shaped fuselage that are constrained by hydrodynamic drivers, such as the step height needed to reduce hydrodynamic drag, and deadrise and sternpost angles needed for safe landing, on aerodynami...
