This project is about the implementation of PRANDTL-D WING to the forward swept wing and Aero dynamical analysis of the new wing configuration obtained. Since the forward swept wings have lesser aerodynamic performance characteristics and greater manoeuvrability at transonic and supersonic Mach ranges than that of the backward swept wings, if the new configuration can boost up the performance characteristics of forward swept wings then the current scenario will be changed. A series of forward swept wing configurations (of varying forward swept angle, twist angle, twist angle position along the wing span and direction of twist) will be will be modelled in the CATIA-V5 and supersonic flow simulations will be run in the ANSYS software and the configuration with best aerodynamic & structural performance characteristics will be made into physical model . The results obtained will be compared with that of existing forward swept wing configurations and backward swept wing configuration.
