Numerical Study of a Trapezoidal Wing High-Lift Configuration 1999-01-5559

An overset grid approach is used to analyze a 3-element trapezoidal wing high-lift configuration. A new software system was developed to automate the overset computational fluid dynamics process. A three-dimensional grid resolution study is conducted, and comparisons of numerical results are made to experimental data which were obtained after the simulations. Comparisons between numerical and experimental data are in good agreement for the lift coefficient over a wide range of angles of attack, up to and including CLmax. Comparisons of chordwise distributions of the pressure coefficient between numerical and experimental data are in good agreement for all three elements, except the lift is under-predicted for the tip region when the wing is near CLmax.
