Hi everyone,

I am currently working on an optimization of the NASA X-57 as a preliminary study and I am developing it with the use of SUAVE. However, I wanted to incorporate the aerodynamic results provided by SU2 into my SUAVE code. In order to do this firstly I would like to know if SU2 is capable of calculating the slipstream effect caused by propellers and its influence in the wing lift distribution?

I need to know this since the X-57 has a lot of propellers and their main task is to increase the CLmax of the wing for the takeoff and landing.

Thank you in advance for the feedback.

Kind regards,

Bruno

Thank you for your question.


SU2 has an actuator disk option that is meant to simulate engines in a simple way by adding a jump in flow quantities. This is likely the closest to what you are looking for that is currently implemented.

For an example, see:

TestCases/rans/propeller/propeller.cfg



And there are also some additional engine related options in the config_tempalte files that may help.
