Descripción
This paper is focused on designing a Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV) of biological inspiration at Technical University of Madrid (UPM). The main goal is to analyze a configuration of winglets based on several grids which emulate the wingtip feathers of birds; it could also be called wing-grid device. In aerospace design, new wingtips tried to modify the lift distribution over the wing; beside this, it is possible to reduce induced drag. The research begins with a wide and extensive analysis in order to decide the optimal configuration of multiple winglets. The computational study has consisted of an optimization using Tornado software in which the number of grids, the chord and the gap between them has been varied. Model with three grids at the tip of the wing has been the optimal solution. Based on this optimal configuration, a complete wind tunnel study using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) at INTA facilities has been required to analyze the feasibility of this wing-grid device.
