The results show a definite limit to the speed at which airfoils may efficiently be used to produce lift, the lift coefficient decreasing and the drag coefficient increasing as the speed approaches the speed of sound. Structured, overset grids are used in conjunction with an incompressible Navier-Stokes flow solver to investigate flow over a two-element high-lift configuration. Several different natural laminar flow NLF airfoils have been analyzed for stability of the laminar boundary layer using linear stability codes.

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. An aerodynamic design optimization procedure that is based on a evolutionary algorithm known at Differential Evolution is described.

Comparisons of the theoretical and experimental results show excellent agreement. An adjunct approach consistent with the complete coupled state equations is employed to obtain the sensitivities needed to drive a numerical optimization algorithm.

Velocity diagrams and blade leading and trailing edge metal angles selected for the conventional rotor and stator blading were used in the design of the tandem blading. The generally “C” configuration includes a compound bow in which internal stresses resulting from adta thermal temperature gradient are reduced.


Computer codes designed by Richard Eppler were used for this study. Fraser, Airfoils at Low Speeds.

The NLF airfoils analyzed come from three different design conditions: We mathematically relate the two parameterizations with a common polynomial series.

Trailing edge flow conditions as a factor in airfoil design. The method of manufacturing desigb airfoil can include a type of desiggn wax investment casting process in which a pin array is cast into an airfoil to form a cooling chamber. 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.

However, it was believed that the range of application of the method had not been fully exploited.

The data may also be applied to the design of air brakes and spoilers. Numerical design of advanced multi-element airfoils. These values are then automatically adjusted during the design process to satisfy the flow and geometric constraints.

These models utilize the upper-bound and the slab methods of analysis, and are capable of predicting the lateral spread, roll-separating force, roll torque and local stresses, strains and strain rates. As indicated by the resolvent response modes, we find that the use of intermediate frequencies are most effective in suppressing the flow separation, since the shear layer over the separation bubble and the wake are both receptive to the perturbation at the these frequencies.

The chordwise locations and pressure levels of these points are initially estimated either from empirical relationships and eppker characteristics of pressure distributions for a given class of airfoils or anr fitting the points to an existing pressure distribution. The aerodynamic performance such as mean and fluctuating lift and dragare first compared to a “traditional” low Reynolds number airfoil: The test section instrumentation consisted of surface pressure taps, wake rakes, surface-mounted microphones, and skin-friction gauges.

Dsta two primary objectives of high maximum lift, insensitive to roughness, and low profile drag have been achieved. Experimental investigation of a percent-thick helicopter rotor airfoil section designed with a viscous transonic analysis code. Thus a systematic study was being undertaken to investigate and explore the range of application of the method so as to determine its overall potential.
