Abstract

Nowadays, Airfoil shape optimization are developed by many researchers. Especially, evolutionary method is taken to find out the shape of airfoil. The main objective work is finding the shape of airfoil that get the aerodynamic properties which good for lift and drag of the aircraft wing. PSO is the evolutionary method that used for this work. The work are combination between the CFD analysis as Reynolds number 550,000 and optimization technique to get the airfoil shape that maximum lift to drag ratio. The result is compared with the standard NACA 2412 airfoil. The optimization airfoil has improved lift to drag ratio compared to the standard NACA 2412 airfoil for 53.22%.
