Unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes simulations are presented in which two-dimensional airfoil motion parameters have been extended to three-dimensional wing motion. The motion parameters have been redefined including induced angles of attack which have been identified using a panel method based on Prandtl's wing theory. The numerical simulation approach includes a mesh deformation tool to perform the wing's movement. The resulting thrust and propulsive efficiency on wing sections are compared to equivalent two-dimensional simulations.
