Effect of wing deformation on aerodynamic loads at supersonic speeds

Özkökdemir, Emir
Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda
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 the deformed wing configuration. In the current study, a wing based on NACA65-009 airfoil is selected as a test case at zero angle of attack. Two and three dimensional flow characteristics are investigated. Effect of the three dimensional deformation on aerodynamic performance is presented.

Effect of forward velocity on rectangular wings flapping with piezoelectric actuators
Çömez, Fadile Yudum; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda (null; 2018-07-11)
In the current study, unsteady aerodynamic forces of two flapping rectangular wings are investigated using two different materials namely, aluminum and plexigla ss. Two different materials used for the wings are intended to observe the effects of the wing flexibility on instantaneous aerodynamic forces. A Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) piezoelectric actuator is used for flapping the wing models. The wind tunnel tests are performed with velocities ranging from 0m/s to 12 m/s. Output flapping frequencies are m...

In this study, the unsteady aerodynamics of SD7003 airfoil undergoing “figure-of-eight” motions with vertical translation amplitudes of 0c (normal hover), 0.5c and 1c is investigated numerically. The forces and vortex fields are compared at the same Reynolds number that is defined with respect to the maximum absolute velocity. Also the effect of the reduced frequency is investigated and it is found that in the meantime, decreasing reduced frequency and increasing Reynolds number does not alter the general f...
Effect of thickness-to-chord ratio on flow structure of nonslender delta wing
Gülsaçan, Burak; Ghazijahani, Mohammad Sharifi; Şencan, Gizem; Yavuz, Mehmet Metin (2018-11-18)
The effects of thickness-to-chord (t/C) ratio on flow structures of nonslender delta wings with sweep angles of 35 and 45 degrees are characterized in a low-speed wind tunnel using velocity, pressure, and force measurements. The delta wings with t/C ratios varying from 2 % to 19 % are tested at broad ranges of attack angles and Reynolds numbers. The results indicate that the effect of t/C ratio on flow structure is quite substantial. Considering the low angles of attack where the wings experience leading ed...
Effect of Dry Friction Damping on the Dynamic Response of Helicopter Tail Shaft
Ozaydin, Onur; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2017-02-02)
Tail Drive Shaft of a helicopter transmits torque from the main gear box to the tail rotor and in most of the helicopter designs, tail shafts are designed to work in supercritical speeds. In order to limit resonance vibrations of the tail drive shaft, dry friction dampers can be used. Therefore, in order to study the effect of dry friction damping on the response of tail drive shaft, a mathematical model is developed. The tail drive shaft is modeled as a beam by using Euler-Bernoulli beam theory. Bearings s...
Effects of Various Design Parameters on the Performance of a Cruise Missile Wing
Yaman, Yavuz (null; 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 t...
