Abstract

Leading edge thrust is generally caused by passing air flow from lower to upper surface and it is required to have sufficient angle of attack for notable leading edge thrust. To produce leading edge thrust at low angle of attack, utilizing expansion wave accompanying low pressure is able to be a solution. Fore structure changes the direction of flow, and this flow passes the projected edge. As a result, from a perspective of the edge, it is able to have high angle of attack, and artificial expansion wave is generated. This concept shows 9.48% increase of L/D in inviscid flow, at Mach number 1.3 and angle of attack $1^{\circ}$ in maximum, and this model shows the 3.98% of increasement at angle of attack $2^{\circ}$. Although advantage of the artificial expansion wave decreased as angle of attack increase, it shows the possibility of aerodynamical improvement with artificial expansion wave.
