Abstract

A conceptual design study was carried out on the ecological aircraft for commuter air transportation. Morphing wing concept is adopted for cruise and take-off and landing performance, changing the wing shape between laminar airfoil and high lift airfoil. Elastic materials were applied for the smooth deformation as a morphing mechanism. A morphing wing model equipped with smooth deflection of leading and trailing edge was made and tested in the low speed wind tunnel. Experimental result shows that improvement of the lift coefficient was obtained by use of the morphing wing and possibility of the ecological commuter aircraft with morphing wing.
