Optimization of positional parameters of close-formation flight for blended-wing-body configuration

In the present study, we study formation flight with two flying wing configurations. A low speed wind tunnel test is conducted to validate the accuracy of the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Two optimization procedures are implemented at a high subsonic speed. The free stream Mach number is kept...
