Reports from Hanyang University Describe Recent Advances in Aerospace Research (Study on the Extraction of Aerodynamic Coefficients for the Development of an UAV Simulator using the Unsteady Time-Domain Panel Method)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Defense & Aerospace Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Aerospace Research. According to news reporting from Seoul, South Korea, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "For the development of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) simulator, an aerodynamic analysis was performed. To analyze the aerodynamic coefficient, an unsteady numerical method (time-domain panel method) was used."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Hanyang University, "This panel method was based on the Dirichlet boundary condition coupled with a time-stepping method. The Free Wake method was also used to get more accurate results. The proposed numerical method was validated by comparing our results with experimental data. Through the aerodynamic analysis, longitudinal, lateral, directional and dynamic derivatives were obtained. To build the database for the UAV, the results were predicted rationally."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This research will contribute to designing UAVs as well as to developing UAV simulators."
