Modeling air flow over a wing

Team: 80


Area of Science: Phisics

Abstract: Abstract

Problem Definition
The problem being addressed in this project is to model air flow over an airfoil at different angles of attacks. The goal of this project is to learn more about fluid dynamics in order to calculate changes in air pressures that effect the lift produced by the air flow over the wing.
The purpose of the project is to model air flow over a wing at different angle of attacks.

Plan of Action
We will create a unique airfoil using Flight Simulator design software to show how much lift it will have in different situations. We hope to use Java to develop the model. Other online software packages will also be researched to see if they will be used.
