Effects of Various Design Parameters on the Performance of a Cruise Missile Wing

2019-09-18
The design of a cruise missile wing is a multidisciplinary work because the wing has to provide enough aerodynamic forces while being structurally in safe. Various parameters of the wing are investigated during the design phase in order to meet the design goals and achieve a successful design. In this paper, the effects of different parameters on the lift force and flutter speed of a cruise missile wing are presented. The aerodynamic analyses for predicting the lift force are performed by using FLUENT and the aeroelastic analyses for the determination of the flutter speed are conducted by using ZAERO.

Effect of thickness-to-chord ratio on aerodynamics of non-slender delta wing
Sharifi Ghazijahani, Mohammad; Yavuz, Mehmet Metin; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018)
Flow characterization over delta wings have gained attention in recent decades due to their prevailing usage in designs of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). In literature,only a few studies have reported wing thickness effect on both the aerodynamic performance and detailed flow structure over delta wings. In the present investigation, the effect of thickness-to-chord (t/C) ratio on aerodynamics of a non-slender delta wing with 45 degree sweep angle is characterized in a low-speed wind tunnel using laser illumi...
Effect of wing deformation on aerodynamic loads at supersonic speeds
Özkökdemir, Emir; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda (null; 2017-09-22)
Aerodynamic performance of wings is directly related to the flow characteristics and the wing geometry. The change in the wing geometry by external loads such as the temperature gradient formed by aerodynamic heating and the pressure distribution on wing surfaces affect the flow characteristics around the wing. In addition, the change in the flow characteristics affects the structural and the thermal loading on the wing. Therefore, aerodynamic performance for undeformed wing has not the same performance as ...
Generic trim analysis and simulation algorithm creation for design and optimization of the fixed wing aircraft
Özdemir, Mustafa; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda (2021-09-10)
In order to design a fixed wing aircraft, certain phases are needed to perform. From these phases, trim analysis and simulation are very crucial for design process. Trim and simulation analysis enable to calculate performance and stability characteristics of the aircraft. After aerodynamic, weight and engine database creation, the next step is trim analysis and simulations. However, database creation phase requires a huge amount of computing time, and for the preliminary design phase it is needed to perform...
