This research includes an aerodynamic and static structural analysis of a newly constructed bio-mimetic corrugated aerofoil inspired by dragonfly forewing. The radius of the forewing was employed to situate the basal wing section of the dragonfly corrugated aerofoil structure used in this investigation. The stressed skin structure is defined by these corrugations, which are made up of grider-like veins and a thin cuticle membrane that provides a sophisticated mechanical advantage for longitudinal bending resistance while yet allowing for wing camber and torsion. The incredible flight ability of dragonflies are well known. They’re made to carry both inertial and aerodynamic loads. A computer analysis of a newly designed dragonfly corrugated aerofoil is performed at a Reynolds number of 15000, with flow assumed to be laminar, stable, incompressible, and two dimensional. Using Ansys Fluent and Ansys Mechanical APDL, the project covers static structural analysis and aerodynamic flow study of a 2-D dragonfly corrugated aerofoil. The design criteria used, as well as simulations done on a corrugated aerofoil, have been discovered to give much better results than previous studies. The structural analysis also shows that the wing span can bear maximum pressure loads and has a high level of stiffness. This discovery expands our understanding of insect-inspired corrugated wing structure and makes it easier to develop better artificial wings for MAVs and UAVs.
