The Effect of Canard on Aerodynamics of Blended Wing Body
This paper describes the wind tunnel testing of a Blended Wing Body (BWB) with rectangular canards and twisted wing (Baseline II E2 configuration) developed in Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). The experiment work was carried out in UiTM low speed wind tunnel using 1:6 scaled model of BWB at Mach 0.1. The testing is conducted for canard’s deflection angle between 0° to +20. The results show by adding the canard surface to the BWB’s body, at 12 degree and higher angles of attack,α there will be a slight increment in lift. Maximum lift-to-drag ratio decreases with increasing canard surface deflection. Also, by adding the canard surface, the value of moment at zero lift,CM,0 is increased.
