Several different natural laminar flow NLF airfoils have been analyzed for stability of the laminar boundary layer using linear stability codes. Design analysis of vertical wind turbine with airfoil variation.

A turbine airfoil 31 with an end portion 42 that tapers 44 toward the end 43 of the airfoil. The design applications of the analytical model are discussed, with emphasis given to high temperature first stage turbine vanes and rotor blades. Their performances were compared to those of the corrugated airfoilstressing the advantages of the latter.

A perturbation procedure provides a class of airfoil shapes, beginning with an initial airfoil shape. NASA supercritical laminar flow control airfoil experiment.

An experimental investigation was conducted to measure the flow velocity in the boundary layer of an Eppler airfoil. Problems concerning the numerical stability, convergence, divergence and solution oscillations are discussed. After obtaining the initial airfoil ‘s pressure distribution at the design lift coefficient using an Euler solver coupled with an integral turbulent boundary layer method, the calculations from a laminar boundary layer solver are used by a stability analysis code to obtain estimates of the transition location using N-Factors for the starting airfoil.

Advantages and disadvantages of the three methods are discussed. In addition, a valuable set of friction damping data was generated, which can be used to aid epplerr the design of friction dampers, as well as provide benchmark test cases for future code developers.


Improvements in surface singularity analysis and design methods.

Laminar separation, transition and turbulent reattachment had significant effects on the performance of this airfoil. However, the computer time for this method is relatively large because of the amount of computation required in the searches during optimization. The method which is based on epller Theodorsen thick- airfoil theory permits moderate variations from the basic shape on which the family is based. The airfoil profile was generated by adding and subtracting the thickness curve from the camber curve.

The chordwise locations and pressure levels of these points are initially estimated either from empirical relationships and observed characteristics of pressure distributions for a given class of airfoils or by fitting the points to an existing pressure distribution.

A ridge 46 extends around the end portion. The objective of retaining amd high-lift low speed characteristics for an airfoil designed to have good medium speed cruise performance was achieved. The system is being applied to cold and hot isothermal rolling of an airfoil shape, and will be verified with respect to laboratory experiments under controlled conditions.

A turbine airfoilsuch as a rotor blade or a stator vane, for a gas turbine engine, the airfoil formed as a shell and spar construction with a plurality of hook shaped struts each mounted within channels extending in a spanwise direction of the spar and the shell to allow for relative motion between the spar and shell in the airfoil chordwise direction while also fanning a seal between adjacent cooling channels.

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 Emphasis is placed on identifying some of the major factors influencing the anticipated performance of epoler airfoils. The capability of the method to dataa large design spaces and obtain the optimal airfoils in an automatic fashion is demonstrated.


Comparisons of the theoretical and experimental results show generally good agreement.

It was found that the flow which separates from the corrugations and forms spanwise adn intermittently reattaches to the aft-upper arc region of the airfoil. Laser Doppler velocimetry boundary layer data for the NACA airfoil at a Reynolds number ofand angle of attack of 12 degree is also presented.

This work addresses the problem from the perspective of passive airfoil design. The airfoil was designed for a lift coefficient of 0. Effective aerodynamics at Reynolds numbers lower than 10 is of great technological interest and a fundamental scientific challenge. Low-speed aerodynamic characteristics of a 13 percent thick medium speed airfoil designed for general aviation applications. Numerical analysis method was utilized to study the aerodynamic characteristics of the airfoils as well as the akrfoil.

The basic objective of combining the high maximum lift of the NASA low speed airfoils with the low cruise drag of the NACA 6 series airfoils has been achieved.
