Abstract

Ailerons are one factor that impacts a wing’s aerodynamic behaviour, fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. In order to evaluate their impact on the aerodynamic behaviour of a wing, wind tunnel tests were carried out at different speeds (15 and 20 m/s) and at various angles of incidence (-20° to +20°). These results will be used to construct an experimental model that will extend to the study of a morphing wing concept and to eventually extrapolate results for higher speeds.
