Design and Optimization of a Fin Stabilizer Using Cfd Codes and Optimization Algorithm


In the present paper the design process of a stabilizer fin is presented. Different computational tools were adopted: a two-dimensional panel-code was used to design the two-dimensional airfoil candidates and an optimizer based on genetic algorithms was used to choose the optimum airfoil. A panel-code and a NavierStokes solver were successively adopted to… (More)
