Fluid-Structure Interaction of Inflatable Wing Sections

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractScientific

Abstract

We investigate inflatable kites made of membranes such as ram-air [1] and leading edge inflatable [2] kites. The kites are very flexible and therefore exhibit a strong coupling between fluid and structure. An accurate aerodynamic model is essential to design kites which are aerodynamically efficient and of high steering capability
