This investigation looks into the induced surface pressure field and flow field of a 2-D flat plate aerofoil with simulated battle damage. Enhancing survivability is a major design criteria for military aircraft designers, and the aerodynamic effects of battle damage has recently come to the fore as an area that warrants further attention. The current investigation is in effect a continuation of the battle damage research initiated at Loughborough University by Irwin, with the ultimate aim of enabling quick and accurate CFD studies to assess the aerodynamic impact of battle damage on a lifting surface.
