In the present study open-source CFD tool OpenFOAM has been used to simulate (i) two dimensional turbulent flow past airfoils and (ii) three dimensional turbulent flow past rectangular thin wing and fuselage used for MAV (Micro Air Vehicle) applications. The results obtained from the present simulation have been compared with NAL incompressible flow solution code 3D-PURLES and the available measurement data. The turbulent flow simulations have been carried out by solving the Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations.
