Determining the Size, Strength and Scope of a Quadcopters Ground EffectDetermining the Size, Strength and Scope of a Quadcopters Ground Effect

OMEGAs TQ201 Series Torque Sensor

Corrugated plastic is usually made from polypropylene which is capable of being recycled and is a highly suitable material for making water/air pressure rocket fins. The objective is to investigate which corrugation orientation, parallel to the air flow or parallel to the fins leading edge, is more drag efficient.

Drag Effects of Corrugated Plastic Rocket Fin Design and Corrugation OrientationTest ProcedureThe project will consist of a total of six tests, one for each of three fin designs. Three of the fins will have the corrugations parallel to leading edge and the other three fins will have the corrugations parallel to the root chord. NASA Ames Research Center Fluid Mechanics Laboratory Lifesaver Wind Tunnel will be used for testing. Each fin will be mounted on the Omega TQ201 Series Torque Sensor to measure the drag for each design.
