It has now been a long thought project : adding up my own winglets to LS6a “AD”.
The story of the design and corresponding detailed aerodynamic analysis has been presented during XXXth OSTIV congress in Szeged (August 2010).
- This winglet design has converged, using reasonnably simple method and pragmatic considerations
- A CAD model, compatible with milling constraints, has been created by Flybiwo
- A set of Navier stockes computation has been performed using TAU code (DLR)
It is now a matter of actually building and flying those winglet :-)
For different reasons (including funding…) the materialisation of those winglet is stalled for now. If you show an interest to it, don’t hesitate to contact me !
