Analysis of Morphing Wing (Split-Winglet)
Performance and Experimental Analysis of Morphing Wing (Split-Winglet)
The background behind this group project looks into the concept of morphing wings with particular focus on the split-winglet variation. To do this successfully, the project was split into sub-sections. The project starts off by introducing the concept of morphing wing and winglets actuators. A design process was then generated to investigate the different ways in which winglets could be incorporated into the wing.
CFD analysis was implemented to see the different aerodynamic effect of the winglet. Finite element analysis was also generated to see the structural deformation of the wing. The construction stage of the project looks at actual development of the wing for the flight testing.
