Design and Analysis of Humpback Whale Shaped Wing
This Project, ‘Design and Analysis of Humpback Whale Wings’ put forward the significant aerodynamic problem and deliberately strives to minimize by redefining the aerodynamic shape. This project mainly focuses on the aerodynamic shape of the wing to reduce the downwash generated by comparatively decreases the vortex generation at the trailing edge significantly provide that circulation remains zero. Redefining the aerodynamic shape of the wing in the sense by incorporating the circular cross-sections at the leading edge of the wing, termed as ‘Ventral Fins’ or ‘Tubercles’. It is inspired from the Humpback whales. The tubercles on the leading edge act as passive-flow control devices that improve performance and maneuverability.
