Three-dimensional unsteady RANS computations are performed for the flow past a pure heaving/plunging rectangular wing to study the effect of reduced frequency and heaving amplitude on the thrust generation and propulsive efficiency. The numerical solution has been obtained by using an implicit Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes solver IMPRANS that employs finite volume nodal point spatial discretization scheme with dual time stepping. The results are obtained in the form of aerodynamic coefficients, thrust coefficient and propulsion efficiency and compared with the available data in the literature.
