Abstract
Based on the variable forward-swept wing configuration, this paper utilizes a variable forward-swept wing mechanism with a double slideway, which makes it possible for the aircraft to switch among orthogonal wing, forward-swept wing and delta wing freely. The general configuration of the variable forward-swept wing mechanism with a double slideway is elucidated by means of a three-dimensional model plot and then the mathematic model is also established. The motion characteristics of linear motion are simulated, analyzed and optimized. The results indicate that the variable forward-swept wing mechanism with a double slideway can meet the aerodynamic requirements better. Moreover, there exists a larger moment amplification factor in forward-swept small Angle to provide greater control driving moment. Therefore, this mechanism may serve as a useful reference when developing a morphing aircraft.
