L. Wiart, D. Hue, G. Carrier
Keywords: aerodynamics, flight mechanics, aircraft trimming, empennage, aeroelasticity
This paper focuses on an automated chain developed at ONERA for the generation of aerodynamic polars ensuring longitudinal trim of the aircraft. This process is carried out with chimera or mesh deformation techniques and through the coupling of a RANS solver with a search algorithm calculating adequate trimming surface deflection.
