Abstract

Wing is an important component of an aircraft, it helps to generate lift and also drag during take -off and landing, respectively. Wing`s vital role generating the lift above said our attempt to design a wing which has different sections i.e the wing is divided into several sections. This will increase the lift capacity of n aircraft while take off. We designed an airfoil keeping the NACA 2412 as base change some feature such as camber location. The wing is divided into five different sections. An actuator is used to change camber of a wing, and we considering the actuator responding 99%to change of the camber. A pneumatic actuator is used for varying the camber of an airfoil in each section of the wing for varying the angle of attack of the designed wing. The wing is designed by using an ANSYS& GAMBIT and the aerodynamic properties are found graphically by using FLUENT software. From the data we used, we aim at increasing the performance of an aircraft such as decreasing ground roll i.e decreasing take off distance and landing distance.
