Flow Analysis around a Wing Section by a Piecewise Linear Panel Method Park, Gi-Duck; Oh, Jin-An; Lee, Jin-Tae;
Panel methods are useful tools for analyzing fluid-flow around a wing section. It has the advantage of fast and accurate calculation, compared to other CFD Methods such as RANS solvers. This paper suggests a piecewise linear panel method in order to improve accuracy of existing panel methods by changing the piecewise constant singularity strength to linear singularity strength(for dipole strength). The piecewise linear panel method adopts the linear distribution of singularity strength, while control point is located at the node of each panel. Formulation of the piecewise linear panel method is given, and some calculation results are shown for typical wing sections.
