Title: Variable Surface Roughness Transition and Turbulence Modeling for Rotor Parasitic Drag
Agency: DOD
Contract: W911W6-13-C-0002
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), in collaboration with the Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center at the University of Maryland (UMD) at College Park, submits this Phase I Army SBIR to develop a numerical model for variable surface roughness distributions of materials such as glass, metal, and protective coatings that can be used in CFD simulations for accurate estimation of the parasite drag of an aircraft. The end product will be a surface roughness model based on efficient engineering algorithms that can be implemented into government and industry production-level CFD codes to estimate parasite drag of an Army aircraft within its design envelope.
