The objective of the present study is to carry out a numerical study of the flow around a NACA0021 modified wing by the incorporation of sinusoidal tubercles on its leading edge at a Reynolds number equal to 225,000. The SST k-ω turbulence model is used as closure to the incompressible governing equations. Runs have been performed for several attack angles. Results show that for lower angles of attack, tubercles reduce the drag coefficient with a slight increase in lift.
