Abstract

This paper briefs about the morphing airfoil with variable camber and it makes use of compliant rib mechanism. Lightweight system for actuation, complaint internal structure and a flexible skin are some of the key requirements for such mechanisms. Wing morphing is a biologically inspired technique where-in, the change in shape of wings can offer various advantages compared to the conventional solutions we currently have. In this research, we have used the combination of materials such as PLA and TPU in the wing prototype. To meet desirable shape changes, stiffness can either be tailored or actively controlled to guarantee flexibility in the chord-wise (or span-wise) direction with tailored actuation forces. Hence, corrugated structures, segmented structures, reinforced elastomers or flexible matrix composite tubes embedded in a low modulus membrane are all possible structures for morphing skins.

Key Words

Complaint rib mechanism, elastomers, flexible skin.
