A Study of Winglet and Aerodynamic Interferences in 3-D Viscous Flow around a Flying-Boat in Ground Effect

H. Afshar and M.M. Alishahi

Abstract:
In this study, the flow field about a complete flying-boat in ground effect is resolved. The influences of using winglet in ground and out of ground effects are compared and it is shown that ground affects this influence to a large extent. It is also shown that with careful shaping of the body and using a step underneath the body a propulsive force can be produced in vicinity of the ground. However, this causes an increase in drag force in free flight.
