Abstract: Macro fiber composite actuators are used to displace inward or outward the upper surface of a NACA 4415 airfoil model. In the design discussed, these thin and light piezoelectric actuators are bonded to the inside and become an integral part of the skin of the upper-surface. Still-air and wind-tunnel measurements in different flow regimes were performed to assess the characteristics of static changes of the shape of the upper surface. The results obtained can be used to design a wing with morphing upper surfaces for improved aerodynamics, for maneuvering without ailerons, or for active control of the flow over the wing. © 2011 by Temasek Laboratories - National University of Singapore.
