The Aircraft wing is a point of important research which poses greater challenge in terms of aerodynamic efficiency. The flow separation control method is addressed in classical aerodynamics methods. This study focuses on influence of dimples on controlling the flow and also increasing the aerodynamic efficiency. The periodic process of placing the cavities on the wing starting from root to tip controls the flow separation. The linear variation of characteristic curve provides the information

The numerical simulation is carried out in using MATLAB package. Preliminary analysis on the flow separation is carried out focuses on laminar flow separation, which has the influence on the overall lift generation and drag generation.
