Abstract

Aircraft industry has been deeply concerned about reduction of drag by reducing flow separation and improving the aerodynamic efficiency of flight vehicles, particularly in commercial and military market by adopting various methods. Reduction of flow separation is a concept by which we can increase aerodynamic efficiency. The purpose of the project is to perform an experimental investigation on aerodynamic performance of NACA 0012 airfoil model with and without splits. It is evident from this research work that the airfoil model with split possesses greater aerodynamic performance by producing lesser overall drag. This is due to the delay in flow separation from the surface.
