Ishak , Iskandar Shah and Tang, Mun Kit (2006) Experimental and computational fluid dynamic studies on microlight model. In: Advances in Mechanical Engineering Part 2 - 2006. Penerbit UTM, Johor , pp. 41-58. ISBN 978-983-52-0543-9
According to Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), microlight can be defined as [British Microlight Aircraft Association BMAA,1995) : ‘A one or two seat aeroplane whose Maximum Total Weight Authorized (MTWA) at take-off shall not exceed 390 kg and whose wing loading at MTWA shall not exceed 25 kg per square meter nor shall the fuel capacity exceed 50 liters, ,The implementation of wind tunnel testing and simulation by CFD is becoming a trend as part of the aircraft design analysis process. This article presents the wind tunnel testing on a 1:25 scaled-down model of single-seater microlight, as well its data reduction procedures. CFD simulation was also carried out for results comparison.
