Abstract
This paper describes a comprehensive experimental and computational modelling study of the aerodynamic environment around the UK’s new Queen Elizabeth Class (QEC) aircraft carriers. The study has been performed to support the integration of the F-35B Lightning II multi-role fighter with the UK Royal Navy’s flagship, HMS Queen Elizabeth. Unsteady airwakes have been generated using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and have been incorporated into the F-35/QEC Integration Flight Simulator at BAE Systems Warton and into the HELIFLIGHT-R research simulator at the University of Liverpool. A small-scale experiment has also been conducted in which a 1.4m long (1:200) s...
