Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the drag reduction by conducting aerodynamics analysis on Blended Wing Body (BWB) aircraft. The BWB is the configuration where the wing and fuselage are blended together, which results in a hybrid flying wing shape. This configuration shows promise in terms of improved aerodynamic efficiency over conventional configuration. The Blended Wing Body aircraft is more advantageous compared to the modern conventional aircraft. The main aim of this paper is to optimize the BWB aircraft to reduce the induced drag formed at the wing tips and also to increase the lift of an aircraft. Optimization of the existing model by fixing the smart winglets and conventional winglets at the BWB wing tips.
