Description:

Neuware - Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Engineering - Aerospace Technology, grade: A, University of Southampton, course: Computational Aerodynamics, language: English, abstract: Wing-in-ground effect (WIG) vehicles offer an exciting capability to fill the enormousvoid between speed of an aircraft and the payload capacity of a ship. WIG vehicleswould be able to move cargo and passengers faster than a ship and more economicalthan an aircraft. Ground effect is a phenomenon that occurs on all wings flying closeto the ground or a surface.The aim of this project is to investigate the behavior of wings (NACA/DHMTU series)in ground effect (on a fixed/variable terrain) using Fluent CFD package. The NACA0012 and DHMTU series used in this project are designed specifically to fly in closeproximity to the ground.The performance of the NACA/ DHMTU airfoils is examined for the lift and the dragcoefficients at different altitudes with varying angle of attack.
