Validation

Aeolus ASP is designed for conceptual and preliminary design of aircraft wings. It can also be used for propeller blades. This section shows comparisons of the computational results with wind tunnel data and CFD results.

Fixed Wing Aircraft

The report below compares the wing surface pressure distribution and induced drag for 3 wing configurations:

  • Straight wing
  • Swept wing
  • Boxwing

As result, Aeolus ASP shows excellent agreement with wind tunnel measurements.

Propeller Blades

Aerodynamic simulations on propellers were compared against wind tunnel results and OEM specifications. Thrust, power, and efficiency plots confirm a good agreement between simulations and experiment.
