양력선 이론을 이용한 EDISON CFD 해석자의 검증
Prandtl’s Lifting-line theory is the classical theory of calculating aerodynamic properties. Though it is classical method, it predicts the aerodynamic properties well. By lifting-line theory, high aspect ratio is critical factor to decrease induced drag. And ‘elliptic-similar’ wing also makes the minimum induced drag. But due to the problem of manufacturing, tapered wing is preferred and have been utilized. In this Paper, by using Edison CFD, verifying the classical lifting-line theory. To consider induced drag only, using Euler equation as governing equation instead of full Navier-Stokes equation. Refer to the theory, optimum taper ratio which makes the minimum induced drag is 0.3. Utilizing the CFD results, plotting oswald factor over various taper ratio and investigating whether the consequences are valid or not. As a result, solving Euler equation by EDISON CFD cannot guarantee the theoretical values because it is hard to set the proper grid to solve. Results are divided into two cases. One is the values are decreased gradually and another seems to following tendency, but values are all negative number.
