Abstract

Vortex Generator has been found to be very useful in a wide area of applications. The various types and position of vortex generator can be applied for specific tasks. For instance, the used of vortex generators have been implemented on the surface of vehicles such as BMW and on the wing of aircraft. The vortex generators used in delay the flow separation occurs toward the surface of vehicles. By applying this method, a higher amount of lift force can be obtain at the critical angle of attack apply towards an aerofoil and overcome the increasing drag force. Recently, the aerodynamics performances are frequently being studied for airflow control. The vortex generator has the ability to control airflow on wing profiles by maintaining the streamline of the boundary layer. This report attempts to define the principle and application of the vortex generator. Vortex generator is introduced in the beginning a detailed review and designs is presented. Furthermore, for the outstanding findings for this thesis are, VGs with fin shape have better aerodynamics performance compared with other cases and it achieved the functional application of VGs which are used to delay flow separation occurs on the surface of aerofoil and prevent stall at higher angle of attack applied. Last but not least this thesis had fulfil its objectives to obtain CL and CD for all the cases and make a comparison between the aerodynamics performances.
