Results are presented, where both target speed distributions and minimum drag are used as objective functions. From the aerodynamic point of view, thick airfoils are known to be very sensitive to surface contamination or turbulent inflow conditions. Each of the chord and the span has a bow being summed to airfoip a generally “C” configuration of the airfoil.

Besides, the inward dimpled surface of NACA produces lesser drag at a positive angle of attacks. Thus, the design variables are changed on a grid where their changes produce nonsmooth high-frequency perturbations that can be damped efficiently by the multigrid. The data section contains new airfoils for a wide range of Reynolds numbers and application requirements including general aviation aircraft, tailless airplanes, gliders, propellers, etc.

Natural laminar flow airfoil design considerations for winglets on low-speed airplanes. The method is based on the streamline curvature velocity equation. This work aims to produce a higher fidelity model of the blades for NASA’s X all electric propeller driven experimental aircraft. The taper angle 44 may vary from lesser on the pressure side 36 to greater on the suction side 38 of the airfoil. A parametric investigation indicates that the airfoil lift-drag ratio can be increased by decreasing the thickness ratio.

The results of an experimental study to document the effects of separation and transition on the performance of an airfoil designed for low Reynolds number operation are presented. The instantaneous objective function is operationally straightforward. The success of the low speed NLF airfoil sparked interest in a high speed NLF airfoil applied to a single engine business jet with an unswept wing.

Wing-mounted superfans can reduce fuel consumption and engine tone noise. A summary of the major findings of the Sandia meter blade development program, from the initial SNL baseline blade through the fourth SNL blade study, is provided. Good agreement is shown between the predictions from the two analyses.

Blade or airfoil designs are normally made in two steps, and the lectures are accordingly grouped into two parts. LEWICE predictions of ice shapes, in general, compared reasonably well with ice shapes obtained in the IRT, although differences in details of the ice shapes were observed. Scoping of shape changing airfoil concepts including both aerodynamic analysis and materials-related technology assessment effort was performed.

Some of the objectives for the designed airfoils concern the aerodynamic behavior high efficiency and lift, high tangential coefficient, insensitivity to rough conditions, etc. Design of transonic airfoil sections using a similarity theory.

A computer program for transonic airfoil design and analysis in nonuniform flow. A comprehensive review of airfoil research is presented.

The design manipulations are handled by an inversedesign, conformal mapping method, and unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations are desig to predict the aerodynamic performance under pitch motion. The response mode obtained from the resolvent analysis about the baseline turbulent mean flow reveals modal structures that can be categorized into three families when sweeping through the resonant frequency: A wind tunnel investigation was conducted to determine the 2-D aerodynamic characteristics of two new rotorcraft airfoils designed especially for application to the inboard region of a helicopter main rotor blade.


These gaps are designed in combination with the taper angle 44 to accommodate differential thermal expansion while maintaining a znd seal along the contact surfaces.

The numerical data was generated using a two-dimensional, incompressible, Navier-Stokes algorithm with the Spalart-Allmaras turbulence model. A theoretical study has been conducted to design and evaluate two airfoils for helicopter rotors. Advanced Airfoils Boost Helicopter Performance. The company’s fleet of S helicopters has been rebuilt to include Langley’s patented airfoil designand the helicopters are now able to carry heavier loads and fly faster and farther, and the main rotor blades have twice the previous service life.

The design criteria are discussed.

In the course of designing the airfoilspecifically for the APEX test vehicle, epplwr studies were made over the Mach and Reynolds number ranges of interest. To evaluate the aerodynamic performance of a designviscous Navier-Stokes solvers can be used. Given the abrupt nature of the phenomena, large margins are typically established to prevent fatigue loads on the blades and pitch links; thus, limiting operation under high altitudes, high payloads, high temperatures, as well as during maneuvers.

This mechanism is responsible for the relatively low intensity of the vortices in the airfoil wake, reducing the drag and increasing the flight performances of this kind of corrugated airfoil as compared to traditional low Reynolds number airfoils such as the Eppler E However, there is no literature that integrates sinusoidal leading edge and dimpled to attain the benefits of the both.

Quiet airfoils for small and large wind turbines. One airfoil had an additional constraint for low pitching-moment at the transonic design point. Data from these tests provided an empirical check on the accuracy of the computer code developed in the analysis phase.
