Design analysis of vertical wind turbine with airfoil variation. The airfoil is steam and air-cooled by flowing cooling mediums through cavities extending in the vane between inner and outer walls.

These options permit the analysis of airfoils having variable chord variable geometrya boundary layer displacement iteration, and the analysis of the effect of single roughness elements. The second procedure used a weighted average of epplre pressure distributions obtained from an intermediate airfoil redesigned at each of the two design points.

High efficiency in reaching the optimum solution dsign achieved by using a multigrid technique and updating the shape richarv a hierarchical manner such that smooth low-frequency changes are done separately from high-frequency changes.

The S, S, and S Airfoils. In CFACS, one of the measures of the deviation of an airfoil surface from smoothness is the sum of squares of the jumps in the third derivatives of a cubicspline interpolation of the airfoil data. The generally “C” configuration includes richar compound bow in which internal stresses resulting from a thermal temperature gradient are reduced. According to the manufacturer, the Rascal uses an airfoil married from two Eppler airfoils. Effective aerodynamics richatd Reynolds numbers lower than 10 is of great technological interest and a fundamental scientific challenge.

In our previous work it was shown that control theory could be employed to devise effective optimization procedures for two-dimensional profiles by using the potential flow equation with either a conformal mapping or a general coordinate system. Results are presented, where both target speed distributions and minimum drag are used as objective functions.

This book reflects the author’s experience in developing a computer program for the application of potential flow and boundary layer theories to the design and analysis of subsonic airfoils, including the evaluation of total lift, drag, and moment coefficients.


A series of results for which comparisons are made with the known airfoils is presented.

New airfoils have substantially increased the aerodynamic efficiency of wind turbines. The experiment was directed toward evaluating the compatibility of LFC and supercritical airfoilsvalidating prediction techniques, and generating a data base for future transport airfoil design as part of NASA’s ongoing research program to significantly aifoil drag and increase aircraft efficiency.

The project included the design of a wind turbine airfoil family especially conceived for large offshore wind turbine blades, in the order of 5MW machine. 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. We mathematically relate the two parameterizations with a common polynomial series.

The airfoil was anlayzed by using a viscous effects analysis program Results show the airfoil to have good drag rise characteristics over a wide range of normal-force coefficients with no measurable shock losses up to the Mach numbers at which drag divergence occurred for normal-force coefficients up to 0. Effects on aerodynamic performance are presented including the effects of varying amounts of glaze ice as well as the effects of approximately the same amounts of glaze, mixed, and rime ice.

The metal platform includes a platform shank and a radially inner platform dovetail. Three new options were incorporated into an existing computer program for the design and analysis of low speed airfoils. In the course of designing the airfoilspecifically for the APEX test vehicle, extensive studies were made over the Mach and Reynolds number ranges of interest.

The efficiency results from the simulations are used to study the mesh resolution, flow region size, and turbulence models. In our previous work in the area it was shown that control theory could be employed to devise effective optimization procedures for two-dimensional profiles by using either the potential flow or the Euler equations with either a conformal mapping or a general coordinate system.

Virtually all new blades built in this country today use these advanced airfoil designs. For modern aircrafts maneuvering control and reduction of power loss is a matter of great concern in Aerodynamics. Airfoil Design and Data. Separation of airflow over the wings of aircraft at high angle of attack or at other situations is a hindrance to proper maneuvering control. Aerodynamic characteristics of the percent-thick NASA supercritical airfoil 33 designed for a normal-force coefficient of 0.


Aerodynamic Characteristics of Airfoils at High Speeds.

The NLF airfoil was designed for low speed, having a low profile drag at high chord Reynolds numbers. Three general categories of potential components were considered-fan blades, booster and compressor blades, and stator airfoils.

A design method has been developed by which an airfoil with a substantial amount of natural laminar flow can be designedwhile maintaining other aerodynamic and geometric constraints. The aerodynamic performance objectives of the airfoil are discussed. Thus, it is very important to include airfoils with adequate structural properties in this region.

The airfoils include a family of airfoils for a blade 15 to 25 meters in length, a family of airfoils for a blade 1 to 5 meters in length, and a family of airfoils for a blade 5 to 10 meters in length. The results illustrated changes in flow streamlines, separation locations, and surface pressures due to the vortex shed from the flap edge.

This report documents the experimental aerodynamic characteristics of a 14 percent thick supercritical airfoil based on an off design sonic pressure plateau criterion. This work uses computational fluid dynamics CFD to first analyze the propeller blades as a series of 11 differently shaped airfoils and calculate, among other things, the coefficients for lift and drag associated with each airfoil at different angles of attack.

Another embodiment of the airfoil is shaped and contoured to have a Reynolds in a range of about 1, to 4,, and a maximum lift coefficient in a range of about 1. Simulations have been run using finite element method environment. The possibility of replacing wind tunnel tests by computational fluid dynamics is discussed.

Experimental studies of the Eppler 61 airfoil at low Reynolds numbers. Knowledge-based heuristics bridge the gap between theory and designers best practices.

Richad 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.
