Bird Impact Analysis of Wing Leading Edge Structure Based on SPH Method
In this paper, a new bird model which combined the visco-elastic material properties and Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method has been proposed to simulate the bird features in high-speed conditions. A rigid plate impact test was adopted to compare the reaction of SPH and Lagrangian bird model. Compared with the results of Lagrangian bird model, new SPH model was more in line with the experimental data, and has better computational efficiency. The SPH bird model was further used to bird impacting with the wing leading edge by using finite element program LS-DYNA. Two kinds of leading edge structural enhancement programs have been proposed and carried out simulation of bird impact. Basis of calculation, the design parameters of experimental structure was determined and was produced to wait for final testing.
