Airfoil aerodynamic analysis is one of the key applications of CFD simulations. Our Solver - QuickerSim CFD Toolbox for MATLAB ® provides a selection of tools enabling simulation of both subsonic and supersonic airflows over airfoils and other aerodynamic bodies.

It is thus worthwhile to explore the extension of CFD methods for flow analysis to the treatment of aerodynamic shape design. Two new aerodynamic shape design methods are developed which combine existing CFD technology, optimal control theory, and numerical optimization by: Efficient Wing Design for Complex Aircraft Configuration Using CAD, Unstructured CFD and Inverse Problems 9.

CFD Analysis of An RC Aircraft Wing 65 III. RESULT AND DISCUSSION 6 The simulation results for initial model (Prototype-I) and e and the modified wing (Prototype-II) were compared. The discussions were focused on the aerodynamics characteristics which include drag coefficient ‘C D’, lift coefficient ‘C L’, and lift-to-drag.
