Abstract

Unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) computations are presented for low Mach number flow past a combined pitching and plunging NACA 0012 aerofoil. The Implicit RANS solver used for obtaining time-accurate solutions is based on a finite volume nodal point spatial discretization scheme with dual time stepping. The aim is to validate the unsteady solver for flapping motion of the aerofoil. Results are presented in the form of aerodynamic coefficients and compared with available literature, thus demonstrating the capability of the solver to provide useful unsteady input data for aeroelastic and aeroacoustic analysis.
