In this study, the conic winglet which is made by rotating wing tip airfoil by each 3 axis is applied to the dual type combined fan to reduce the wing tip leakage loss. Computational Fluid Dynamics is used to calculate the loss and optimum technique is used to get minimum loss. Optimization results shows that total pressure loss coefficient was reduced by 3.4 %, and optimization model was a bended shape at the end of wing forward to pressure side.
