Inventor ; McKenney, Martin J. A numerical technique is presented for the design of two-dimensional supercritical wing sections with low wave drag. The method which is based on the Theodorsen thick- airfoil theory permits moderate variations from the basic shape on which the family is based.

Unique features of the airfoil included a high design Mach number with shock rppler flow and boundary layer control by suction.

A procedure for analysis of a preliminary Hydrokinetic Turbine blade design is developed. The NACA 6-series airfoils also have favorable critical-speed characteristics and do not appear to present unusual problems associated with the application of high-lift and lateral-control devices. 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.

Low speed airfoil design and analysis. Vertical axis wind turbine airfoil. Examples are presented which demonstrate the synthesis approach, following presentation of some historical information and background data which motivate the basic synthesis process. 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.

The objective of retaining good high-lift low speed characteristics for an airfoil designed to have good medium speed cruise performance was achieved. Their performances were compared to those of the corrugated airfoilstressing the advantages of the latter. This study presents the development of a method to control the shape of an airfoil using SMA actuators. Some of the objectives for the designed airfoils concern the aerodynamic behavior high efficiency and lift, high tangential coefficient, insensitivity to rough conditions, etc.


In particular, the role played by the non-dimensional trailing edge velocity in design is considered and the relationship between the specified value and the resulting airfoil geometry is explored. Optimization was carried out for several objective functions and the airfoil designs obtained were analyzed. As part of the study, the effects of varying the blade slenderness on blade structural performance was investigated. The structure and behavior of the transition separation bubble was documented along with the redeveloping boundary layer after reattachment over an airfoil at low Reynolds numbers.

We compare the design results from shape and trajectory optimizations and investigate the physical relevance of design variables to the flapping motion at on- and off- design conditions. An airfoila method of manufacturing an airfoiland a system for cooling an airfoil is provided. The results illustrated changes in flow streamlines, separation locations, and surface pressures due to the vortex shed from the flap edge.

It is clear that these new airfoils substantially increased energy output from wind turbines. The general methods used to derive the basic thickness forms for NACA 6- and 7-series airfoils and their corresponding pressure distributions are presented.

Transonic airfoil design for helicopter rotor applications. To accomplish this goal, a coupled viscous-inviscid method is used. Drag reductions have been realized using the design method over a range of Mach numbers, Reynolds numbers and airfoil thicknesses.

The two primary objectives of high maximum lift and low profile drag have been achieved. The design space is then computationally searched in this direction; it is these searches that dominate the computation time. Good agreement is shown between the predictions from the two epplee.

Several different natural laminar flow NLF airfoils have been analyzed for stability of the laminar boundary layer using linear stability codes. Airfoils for the tip and mid-span regions of a wind turbine blade have upper surface and lower surface shapes and contours between a leading edge and a trailing edge that minimize roughness effects of the airfoil and provide maximum lift coefficients that are largely insensitive to roughness effects. Advanced technology airfoil research, volume 1, part 2.


Some new developments relevant to the design of single-element airfoils using potential flow methods are presented. A conventional rotor and stator, two dual- airfoil tandem rotors, and one dual- airfoil tandem stator were designed.

In this context, the present paper describes the development of two new airfoils for the blade root region. Richard Epplerc. The major thrust of the research is in three areas: A flapped natural laminar flow airfoil for general aviation applications, the NLF 1 F, has been designed and analyzed theoretically and verified experimentally in the Langley Low Turbulence Pressure Tunnel.

The two primary objectives of high maximum lift, relatively insensitive to roughness, and low profile drag have been achieved.

Airfoil shapes based on the flow field characteristics of the corrugated airfoil were built and analyzed. The second procedure used a weighted average of two pressure distributions obtained from an intermediate airfoil redesigned at each of the two design points. The effects of variations of the fore-and-aft position, height, and shape of the protuberance were measured by determining how the airfoil section characteristics were affected by the addition of the various protuberances extending along the entire span of the airfoil.

Blade or airfoil designs are normally made in two steps, and the lectures are accordingly grouped into two parts.

Insect wings are commonly characterized by corrugated airfoils. This method combines the best features from several preliminary methods proposed by the authors and their colleagues.

Emphasis is placed on the development of computational aerodynamic codes for airfoil analysis and designthe development of experimental facilities and test techniques, and all types of airfoil applications. Structured, overset grids are used in conjunction with an incompressible Navier-Stokes flow solver to investigate flow over a two-element high-lift configuration.
