Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, the problem of three-dimensional jet-flapped wing in viscous flow is investigated by numerical method. A numerical procedure using the standard k-ε turbulence model and the finite volume method in general curvilinear coordinates system is applied to solve the steady three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. A grid generation system and the PHOENICS code using the SIMPLE scheme were adopted to solve the N-S equation. Some numerical results were obtained to discuss the effect of the parameters including jet momentum coefficient, jet deflection angle and aspect ratio of the wing on the performance of the jet-flapped wing.
