Purpose : This study illustrates the morphing effects around a large-scale high-lift configuration of the Airbus A320 with two element airfoil-flap in the take-off position. The flow around the airfoil-flap and the near wake are analyzed in the static case and under time-dependent vibration of the flap trailing-edge known as the dynamic morphing. Design/methodology/approach : Experimental results obtained in the subsonic wind tunnel S1 of IMFT of a single wing are discussed with High-Fidelity numerical results obtained by using the NSMB (Navier-Stokes Multiblock) code with advanced turbulent modelling able to capture the predominant instabilities and coherent structure dynamics. An explanation of the dynamic time-dependent grid deformation is provided, which is used in the NSMB code to simulate the flap’s trailing-edge deformation in the morphing configuration. Finally, Power Spectral Density is performed to reveal the coherent wake structures and their modification due to the morphing. Finding : Frequency of vibration and amplitude of deformation effects are investigated for different morphing cases. Optimal morphing regions at a specific frequency and a slight deformation were able to attenuate the predominant natural shear-layer frequency and to considerably decrease the width of the von Kármán (vK) vortices with a simultaneous increase of aerodynamic performances. Originality/value : New concept of future morphed wings is proposed for a large scale A320 prototype at the take-off position. The dynamic morphing of the flap’s trailing-edge is simulated for a first time for high-lift two-element configuration. In addition, the wake analysis performed helped to show the turbulent structures according to the Organized Eddy Simulation model.
