The aim of this work is to present a numerical simulation of flow around a wing profile NACA0015 under the ground effect. CFD software has been used to determine the aerodynamic performance for different angles of incidence. The flow is considered two-dimensional and the adopted meshing considered the effects of the boundary layer. The Spalart-Almaras turbulence model was adopted for the investigation of complex flow around the profile. The results obtained by CFD were compared to those obtained by the literature.
