Skywalker X8 UAV Aerodynamic CFD Simulation, ANSYS Fluent Tutorial
The X-8 was created especially for FPV and UAV, and it was modified for F-Tek stabilization devices.
An incredible looking and flying FPV/UAV platform made of virtually indestructible EPO that has a great design. This type has enormous under-carriage space, exceptional glide performance, and quick low-power cruise speeds.
In this simulation, a Skywalker X8 UAV with one propeller rotating around the horizontal axis is modeled using ANSYS Fluent software. The device is moving at a speed of 50 km/h.
The geometry of the present model is three-dimensional and has been designed using Design Modeler software. We do the meshing of the present model with Fluent Meshing software. The mesh type is Polyhedra, and the element number is 928,595.
Methodology: Skywalker X8 UAV CFD Simulation
The Multiple Reference Frames (MRF) method is used to model the rotational motion of the propellers.
After the simulation process was finished, contours and vectors for parameters such as velocity, pressure and turbulent intensity were obtained. As shown in the velocity contours, the vortexes behind the propeller are visible where the turbulent intensity parameter is high.
This UAV model experiences less drag than other UAVs do. One of the causes for this is the lack of any UAV components behind the vortexes, as these vortexes dramatically increase drag when they strike any component.
As was expected in the static pressure parameter situation, the UAV’s front surfaces experience the most pressure. It is at the edges of the propellers where the greatest static pressure is applied, demonstrating the importance of this component in production.
