Abstract

This study intends to study about the blade performance loss occurred due to the variation in the shape of an airfoil from attachment/non-attachment of an erosion shield for the hovercraft. The model in this study has used NACA44XXseries, has designed NACA44XX-series by using the Auto CAD, and it designed the shape that has attached an erosion shield to this model according to the thickness and length. By using these models, a grid was generated by GAMBIT and the lift coefficient ($C_l$) and the drag coefficient ($C_d$) were calculated FLUENT code for flow analysis. Through this, the $C_l$ and $C_d$ have calculated and compared the lift-to-drag ratio that an indicator of airfoil performance according to the shape and attachment/non-attachment of erosion shield.
