Smoke flow visualization was employed to document the boundary layer behavior and was correlated with the Eppler airfoil design and analysis computer program.

A shroud platform 50 is bi-cast onto the end portion around the ridge without bonding. The cooling system can be used with an airfoil located in the first stages of a combustion turbine within a combined cycle power generation plant and involves flowing closed loop steam through a pin array set within an airfoil.

Because of the quantity of numerical data required to describe the airfoil surfaces, a CAD approach is required. The safety requirement that the aairfoil lift coefficient not be significantly affected with transition fixed near the leading edge was also met. The NLF airfoils analyzed come from three different design conditions: This conference provided a comprehensive review of all NASA airfoil research, conducted in-house and under grant and contract.

Epller paper presents the preliminary design and evaluation of an airfoil with active continuous trailing-edge flap CTEF as a potential rotorcraft active control device. Although this approach will result in productivity gains, much larger gains can be achieved by automating the design process.

Comparisons of the theoretical and experimental results show generally good agreement. Traditional rotorcraft airfoil design is based on steady-flow aerodynamic requirements.

Airfoil Design and Data

By using multiple parametric airfoilsit can be assumed that all reasonable airfoil configurations are included in the analysis and optimization and that a global and not local maximum is found.

This method determines a robust, optimal, subsonic airfoil shape, beginning with an arbitrary initial airfoil shape, and imposes the necessary constraints on the design.

Advanced Technology Airfoil Research, volume 1, part 1. For recovering this limitation an idea of controlling the movement or rotation of the flap has been proposed in this paper. Airfoil Design for Reynolds Airfoil section characteristics as affected by protuberances. The aerodynamic design of an advanced rotor airfoil. This inclusion of multiple airfoil families addresses a possible criticism of prior optimization attempts since by only focusing on one airfoil family, they were inherently limiting the number of possible airfoil configurations.


The airfoil designed with the method of direct optimization exhibits better characteristics and achieves a gain of 22 percent in lift-drag ratio with a reduction airfool 4 percent aiffoil thickness.

This work aims to produce a higher fidelity model of the blades for NASA’s X all electric propeller driven experimental aircraft. The Eppler airfoil was focused on at a chord Reynolds number ofand an angle of attack of 2 deg. The results are compared to the BEMT model design targets.

This report deals with an experimental investigation of the aerodynamical characteristics of airfoils at high speeds. In this approach, an initial target pressure distribution is developed using a set of control points. 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 The velocities match the given distribution well except for slight deviations at the trailing edge.

Results are presented for the measured performance recently obtained on several airfoil concepts designed to achieve low drag by maintaining extensive regions of laminar flow without compromising high-lift performance.

In addition, comparisons are shown between ice shapes from the tests and ice shapes predicted by the computer code, LEWICE for similar conditions. Spline-Based Smoothing of Airfoil Curvatures.

Actual ice shapes obtained in these tests are also presented for these cases. Flows over full and half-span Fowler flap configurations were computed. The two primary objectives of high maximum lift, relatively insensitive to roughness, and low profile drag have been achieved. The achievement of 70 percent laminar flow using modest boundary layer suction on the wings, empennage, nacelles, and struts of long-range LFC transports, combined with larger wing spans and lower span loadings, could make possible an unrefuelled range halfway around the world up to near sonic cruise speeds with large payloads.

A parametric investigation indicates that the airfoil lift-drag ratio can be increased by decreasing the thickness ratio. At high speeds the center of pressure moves back toward the trailing edge of the airfoil as the speed increases. The experiments were conducted in a wind tunnel on several stainless steel test specimens in which flow and heat transfer parameters were measured over simulated airfoil leading edge surfaces.

These values are then automatically adjusted during the design process to satisfy the flow and geometric constraints. At very high angles of attack, the reversed flow would cause the flap to tip forwards entirely and the effect of the flap would vanish.

Airfoil System for Cruising Flight. The testing phase of the program consisted of performing friction damping tests on two different cantilever beams.

Laser Doppler velocimetry boundary layer data for the NACA airfoil at a Reynolds number ofand angle of attack of 12 degree is also presented. Although not systematically optimized, the SNL design study provides an assessment of and insight into the benefits of flatback airfoils for la rge blades as well as insights into the limits or negative consequences of high blade slenderness resulting from a highly slender SNL planform as was chosen in the final design definition.

Design and experimental results for a flapped natural-laminar-flow airfoil for general aviation applications. The results illustrated changes in flow streamlines, separation locations, and surface pressures due to the vortex shed from the flap edge.

Airfoil design and data

The geometric constraint options include maximum thickness, local thickness, leading-edge radius, and a ‘glove’ constraint involving inner and outer bounding surfaces.

Springer-Verlag Berlin At a Reynolds number of about 9. This work addresses the problem from the perspective of passive airfoil design. A novel boundary value problem in the hodograph plane is studied that enables one to design a shockless airfoil so that its pressure distribution very nearly takes on data that are prescribed. A summary of large blade tec hnology needs and research opportunities is also. Significant improvement has been observed from the simulation results.
