An aerofoil is stream line body. Symmetric aerofoil (NACA 0015) is used in many applications such as in aircraft submarine fins, rotary and some fixed wings. The ultimate objective of an aerofoil is to obtain the lift necessary to keep an airplane in the air. But construction of the blade with proper angle of attack and implementation has significant effect on lift force. Insufficient lift force might cause fail of airplane flying, especially at high speed. Modern technologist use different simulation techniques to avoid costly model testing. But simulation is based on some assumption. Thus practically results are not fully authentic and have a deviation. In this work numerical and experimental investigation of NACA 0015 is studied at different angle of attack (degree) at different velocity of air by determining the forces at every two degrees from 00 to 180. The experimental is conveyed in a low speed wind tunnel. The numerical analysis is conducted using ANSYS (combined with CFD and FLUENT FLOW). The use of the CFD technology greatly reduces the overall investment and efforts for aerofoil design. CFD method contributes to visualize the flow pattern inside aerofoil and takes less time and faster according to experimental methods. After completing the experimental and numerical data is compared. Therefore objective of this paper is to find the deviation and validation of aerodynamics characteristics of aerofoil NACA 0015 for experimental and numerical method.
