Abstract

This paper presents a newly developed three-dimensional Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) routine for the Fish Bone Active Camber (FishBAC) concept that couples a three-dimensional Lifting-Line theory analysis to a two-dimensional viscous corrected panel method (XFOIL) to create a viscous corrected three-dimensional wing aerodynamic solver. This aerodynamic model is then coupled to a previously developed multi-component Mindlin-Reissner plate model based composite analysis routine for the FishBAC morphing device. The methodology is explained, and predictions are validated against existing modeling tools. The FSI model developed in this paper shows good agreement when compared gainst other structural, aerodynamic and FSI tools. Additionally, results show the FishBAC’s ability to improve aerodynamic performance at a wide range of operating conditions.
