An experimental study of a leading-edge alula-inspired device (LEAD) for moderate aspect ratio wings at low Reynolds numbers (2018-07-20)Even though Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) operating at low Reynolds numbers are becoming common, their performance and maneuverability are still greatly limited due to aerodynamic phenomena such as stall and flow separation. ...
Design and aerodynamic analysis of an airfoil with a bioinspired leading edge device for stall mitigation at low Reynolds number operation (2017-04-28)Robust and predictable aerodynamic performance of unmanned aerial vehicles at the limits of their design envelope is critical for safety and mission adaptability. Deployable aerodynamic surfaces, such as flaps or slats, ...
