Keywords: box-wing, aerodynamics, vortex-lattice
The box-wing configuration is being analyzed for an UAV from a numerical point of view after some experimental research done before. A numerical analysis has been performed to understand the behaviour of the configuration, varying the main parameters through the utilization of vortex-lattice codes, complemented later with viscous effects.
