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.
