Vortex Loops Based Method for Subsonic Aerodynamic Loads Calculation
Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Aerospace Department, 105005 2-nd Baumanskaya st., 5/1, Moscow, Russia
The new modification of vortex method is considered. It is based on closed vortex loops that can be considered as the separate vortex “superelement”. It is shown that such approach has number of advantages for vortex wakes evolution simulation. The loops generation algorithm permits to simulate the separation zone due to the self-organization of the loops. In this case, there is no need to determine the location of the vortex sheet separation zones. The developed software package can be used in the calculation of aerodynamic loads on unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as in solving the aeroelasticity problems of structural elements of these aircraft.
