ABSTRACT

The wing, one of the most important parts of aircraft, always requires sophis-ticated design to increase lift, reduce drag and weight. For modern fixed-wing UAV, extending cruising time is always a requirement for the overall design. Designing a most light wing that can match the requirements of work condi-tions is desired. In this work, according to the work conditions, we compare several types of wing and chose beam-type wing. Then we made the detailed design and optimization to reduce the weight of wing. At last, we draw the 3D model for potential realistic production.
