In his research aerodynamic performance of corrugated wing is performed at Reynolds numbers of 15,000 using CFD. This research comprises the aerodynamic performance of 2-D dragonfly corrugated aerofoil at different Angle of Attack (AoA) varying corrugated angle and peak height. The dragonfly wing design pioneers the future development of the Micro Wind Turbine and helps in border security surveillance.
