Abstract

Rise in the performance and therefore profit of airliners is a major challenge for aircraft designers. Here, the design of a Hybrid Laminar Flow Control system is considered and a computational verification has been done to show the performance of the system and by employing the fundamental equations, it showed that the required level of suction across a wing to efficiently suppress flow is achievable. A novel system was designed that could be incorporated into the leading edge of large civil aircraft or adapted to suit alternative aircraft using a combination of active and passive suction methods. A turbo compressor has been employed to provide the certain level of suction, whereas the passive system automatically produces suction by introducing ducting from the high pressure region at the leading edge to the low pressure region at the underside of the wing. By this method the fuel saving of 5% is achievable. The outcome of the investigation shows a good meeting with computational analysis and the available source of validation. This method is recommended to be experimentally investigated.
