Numerical Analysis of Asymmetric Canard-Wing System in Detroit Flying Cars 2019-01-1361

A numerical simulation system of airflow around the Detroit Flying Cars-Wild Dream 1 (WD-1) is introduced. It involves the application of FVM, the mesh-independence system, boundary conditions and the verification of the simulation conditions to NACA airfoil data and the discussion of technological treatments corresponding to the evaluation of asymmetric wings.
The present work is investigating the aerodynamic behavior of an asymmetric canard-wing system used on the Detroit Flying Cars-WD 1 model. The work involves the application of Finite Volume Method (FVM), the mesh-independence system, boundary conditions and the verification of simulation conditions to NACA airfoil data using OpenFOAM software. The Reynolds number based on free stream velocity and root chord is 5X106. Based on the Coefficient of Lift and Coefficient of Drag obtained from the analysis, the effect of canards on the wings, the distance between the canard trailing edge and the leading edge of the wings and the sensitivity of the staggered height between the canard-wing configuration on the left and right side of the fuselage is studied.
