Abstract

Many patents have suggested that spinning aircraft wheels before landing could eliminate tyre smoke at touchdown. Most patents suggest using available wind power to rotate the wheel with wind turbines. In this paper, ANSYS CFX has been employed to simulate different wind turbines spinning a heavy aircraft wheel at approach. The aim of this research is to check the possibility of using wind power for this purpose and to optimize the wind turbine in a size acceptable in the field of aviation, in order to reach the target rotational speed.
