Abstract [en]

A coupled viscous-inviscid interaction scheme combining the continuity equation for potential flow with the three-dimensional integral boundary layer equations is presented. The inviscid problem is discretized by a finite-element approach whereas an upwind-biased finite-volume scheme is employed for the boundary layer equations. The discretization is applicable to unstructured tetrahedral-triangular meshes and results in a sparse system of non-linear equations which is solved by a Newton-type method. The mathematical reasons for the singularities commonly associated with the integral boundary layer equations in separated flow regions are analyzed and the connection between the mathematical singularities and the numerical ill-conditioning is discussed. It is shown that, by a suitable choice of closure relations, it is possible to obtain a boundary layer model free from numerical ill-conditioning in separated flow regions. The accuracy of the coupled viscous-inviscid model is investigated in a number of test cases including transitional and mildly separated flow over two different natural laminar flow airfoils and three-dimensional flow over a swept wing. It is concluded that the coupled method is able to provide reasonably accurate predictions of viscous and inviscid flow field quantities for the investigated cases.

Abstract [en]

The work presented in this thesis was performed with the aim of developing improved prediction methods for aerodynamic and aeroelastic analysis to be used in aircraft design. The first part of the thesis concerns the development of a viscous-inviscid interaction model for steady aerodynamic predictions. Since an inviscid, potential flow, model already is available, the main focus is on the development of a viscous model consisting of a three-dimensional integral boundary layer model. The performance of the viscous-inviscid interaction model is evaluated and it is found that the accuracy of the predictions as well as the computational cost appear to be acceptable for the intended application. The presented work also includes an experimental study aimed at analyzing steady and unsteady aerodynamic characteristics of a laminar flow wing model. An enhanced understanding of these characteristics is presumed to be useful for the development of improved aerodynamic prediction models. A combination of nearly linear as well as clearly nonlinear aerodynamic variations are observed in the steady as well as in the unsteady experimental results and it is discussed how these may relate to boundary layer properties as well as to aeroelastic stability characteristics. Aeroelastic considerations are receiving additional attention in the thesis, as a method for prediction of how flutter characteristics are affected by modeling uncertainties is part of the presented material. The analysis method provides an efficient alternative for obtaining increased information about, as well as enhanced understanding of, aeroelastic stability characteristics.
