Abstract

Installation of vortex generators has less impact on drag compared to Conventional airfoil. In order to improve the performance of the flying vehicles, drag reduction through delaying the flow separation is considered in this project. Flow separation can be delayed by using dimple wings and vortex generators. The scope of this project is to test various simulation parameters of the vortex generator and establish a reliable baseline to obtain reasonable results for 2D computational fluid dynamics analysis using ANSYS Fluent software. The three different types of vortex generators such as parabolic, rectangular and triangular were developed and analysed for better results and enhanced the efficiency of UAV models.
