Unsteady Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes computations are presented for the flow over a pure plunging aerofoil and a plunging wing. The implicit RANS solver used for obtaining time-accurate solution is based on implicit finite volume nodal point spatial discretization scheme with dual time stepping. Baldwin and Lomax turbulence model has been used for the turbulence closure. The results are obtained in the form of aerodynamic coefficients, thrust coefficient and propulsion efficiency for two different cases over the aerofoil and wing and are compared with available literature.
