Model Testing of High Lift system

Project description

A new model for high-lift wings

The amount of lift produced by an aircraft wing is important in the aerospace industry. High-lift systems, which include wing flaps and slats, are under development for small aircrafts in a first Clean Sky 2 research phase. After optimising the aerodynamic and integration design, these devices will be classified based on their high lift architectures to shortlist the best design. The EU-funded MOTHIF project will use a specifically designed and manufactured wind tunnel model for testing variable positions of flap and for different angles of attack. Along with the flap separation control jet blowing system installed at the main wing box trailing edge, this will be installed in the VKI subsonic wind tunnel and tested at the required Reynolds number.
