    Author(s): Khuntia SK and Ahuja ASKhuntia SK and Ahuja AS

    In the recent past small-scale Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (or Unmanned Aerial System as it is called presently) have evolved as an important tool in non-conventional fields like agriculture, e-Commerce, policing, medical logistics in addition to military applications. This paper presents the complete methodology (very limited article exists) applied to optimally design the wing of a small scale Unmanned Aerial Vehicle with help of widely used CFD software, ANSYS to maximize its efficiency. In this study, the application of computational methods in the iterative design process is successfully explored. The various design parameters and features of wing also have been explored with help of CFD analysis to derive the advantages. The strength and stiffness analysis of the UAV wing has also been carried out using ANSYS. The modelling of wing and associated parts were carried out on CATIA. Th.. View More»
