The airfoil in one embodiment is shaped and contoured to have a thickness in a range of about fourteen to seventeen percent, a Reynolds number in a range of about 1, to 2,, and a maximum lift coefficient in a range of about 1.

Airfoil Design and Data

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. The best basic shape, designed with a transonic hodograph design method, was modified to meet subsonic criteria.

It is found that the aerodynamic characteristics of a CTEF are equivalent to those of a conventional DTEF with the same deflection angle but with a smaller flap chord.

In particular, we obtain and interpret a two-dimensional approximation of both transonic lift and drag, and we show how these approximation inform a multi-objective design problem.

NASA supercritical laminar flow control airfoil experiment. The active subspaces enable low-dimensional approximations of lift and drag that relate to eppller airfoil properties. Therefore, we have developed methods which can address airfoil design through either an analytic mapping or an arbitrary grid perturbation method applied to a finite volume discretization of the Euler airfoul.

The first five chapters of this book describe in great detail a procedure for the design and analysis of subsonic airfoils. In addition, comparisons are shown between ice shapes from the tests and ice shapes predicted by the computer code, LEWICE for similar conditions.

The testing phase of the program consisted of performing friction damping tests on two different cantilever beams. Multiple input, single output networks were trained using the NASA Ames variation of the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm for each of the aerodynamic coefficients lift, drag, and moment. In each case, the skin element fills a gap between the airfoil element and the deployed flap or slat to reduce airframe noise.


A fast approach to designing airfoils from given pressure distribution in compressible flows.

The Eppler airfoil was focused on at a chord Reynolds number ofand an angle of attack of 2 deg. The aerodynamic efficiency of a continuous trailing-edge flap is compared to that of a conventional discrete trailing-edge flap DTEF.

A method is presented for designing suitable thickness distributions and mean camber lines for airfoils permitting extensive chordwise laminar flow. Therefore, another evaluation method is needed to provide accurate results at a faster pace. Computer-aided mathematical models for predicting metal flow and stresses, and for simulating the shape rolling process were developed. Most of the data rrichard airfoil section characteristics were obtained epple the Langley two-dimensional low-turbulence pressure tunnel.

The design efforts showed that the first priority objectives, including selected low speed pitching moment, maximum lift dewign drag divergence requirements can be met, though marginally.

The flow condition is satisfied at the end points of the panels. The incorporation of these conditions into the inverse method of Eppler is presented and the modified scheme employed to generate a number of airfoils for consideration.

Richrd summary of large blade tec hnology needs and research opportunities is also. Vertical axis wind turbine airfoil. However, the computer time for this method is relatively large because of the amount of computation required in the searches during optimization. Rlchard design of tightly tolerated sculptured surfaces such as those for airfoils requires a significant design effort in order to machine the tools to create these surfaces. ROLPAS is an interactive program; it offers graphic display capabilities and allows the user to interact with the computer via a keyboard, CRT, and a light pen.

This method combines the best features from several preliminary methods proposed by the authors and their colleagues. At these Reynolds numbers, natural insect flight could provide inspiration for technology development.

Development of drive mechanism for an oscillating airfoil. Some comparisons were made of the experimental data for the new airfoils and the predictions of two different theories.

Grid resolution issues were investigated in two dimensional studies of the flapped airfoil. It is clear that these new airfoils substantially increased energy output from wind turbines. Method system, and product from application of the method, for design of a subsonic airfoil shape, beginning with an arbitrary initial airfoil shape and incorporating one or more constraints on the airfoil geometric parameters and flow characteristics.


At high Reynolds numbers, a broad spectrum of stationary crossflow disturbances amplify and, while it may be possible to control a specific target mode using Discrete Roughness Elements DREsnonlinear interaction between the control and target modes may yield strong amplification of the difference mode that could have an adverse impact on the transition delay using spanwise periodic roughness elements.

Emphasis is placed on identifying some of the major factors influencing the anticipated performance of low-drag airfoils. We have also explored three-dimensional extensions of these formulations recently. Comparisons with other airfoilsboth laminar flow and turbulent flow, confirm the achievement of the basic objective. Problems associated with lateral-control devices, leading-edge air intakes, and interference are briefly discussed, together with aerodynamic problems of application.

Robust, optimal subsonic airfoil shapes. Glauert Model was adopted to design the standard blade and the bionic blade, respectively.

Airfoils permitting extensive laminar flow, such as the NACA 6-series airfoilshave much lower drag coefficients at high speed and cruising lift coefficients than earlier types-of airfoils if, and only if, the wing surfaces are sufficiently smooth and fair. The results of this study indicates that both of the new airfoils offer advantages over the baseline airfoil.

A slat deployment system is coupled to the slat and the skin element, and is capable of deploying and retracting the slat and the skin element. The tests were conducted over a Mach number range from 0. The Bristow code was also used to predict the separation reattachment dividing streamline by inputting the appropriate experimental surface pressure distribution.

The method which is based on the Theodorsen thick- airfoil theory permits moderate variations from the basic shape on which the family is based.
