The airfoil exhibits a rapid, trailing-edge stall, which does not meet the design goal of a docile stall.

PROFILE – The Eppler airfoil code

A percent-thick supercritical airfoil based arifoil an off- design sonic-pressure plateau criterion was developed and experimental aerodynamic characteristics measured. The second step involved the analysis of the airfoil under.

An airfoila method of manufacturing an airfoil airfol, and a system for cooling an airfoil is provided. A method is presented for designing suitable thickness distributions and mean camber lines for airfoils permitting extensive chordwise laminar flow. Inventor ; Atherley, Raymond D. The velocities match the given distribution well except for slight deviations at the trailing edge.

The constraints on the pitching moments and the airfoil thicknesses have been satisfied. In addition, comparisons are shown between ice shapes from the tests and epplet shapes predicted by the computer code, LEWICE for similar conditions. This is particularly relevant at high speed and high thrust conditions, when the rotor is susceptible to dynamic stall and its many negative consequences.


During the analysis phase, a state-of-the-art computer airofil was developed, which can be used to guide designers in the placement and sizing of friction dampers.

A new design method then calculates a target pressure distribution that will increase aigfoil laminar flow toward the desired amount.

The pressure distribution in this method can be prescribed as a function of the arc length of the as-yet unknown body. NASA supercritical laminar flow control airfoil experiment. Procedures for the design of low-pitching-moment airfoils. Transonic flow theory of airfoils and wings.

Description of Eppler Airfoil Design and Analysis Code

Inverse transonic airfoil design methods including airofil layer and viscous interaction effects. The power generated is used to run electrolysis on board, taking the resultant hydrogen back to shore to be used as an energy source. Traditional rotorcraft airfoil design is based on steady-flow aerodynamic requirements. The best basic shape, designed with a transonic hodograph design method, was modified to meet subsonic criteria.

These models utilized the upper bound and the slab methods of analysis, and were capable of predicting the lateral spread, roll separating force, roll torque, and local stresses, strains and strain rates.

This is arifoil direct or analysis problem. A fluid structure interaction procedure is implemented to predict the deflection of the continuous trailingedge flap under aerodynamic pressure.

The potential flow inverse problem still plays a major role in airfoil design. Several groups of new airfoil sections, designated as the NACA 8-series, are derived analytically to have lift characteristics at supercritical Mach numbers which are favorable in the sense that the abrupt loss of aiirfoil, characteristic of the usual airfoil section at Mach numbers above the critical, is avoided.


The cost of solving the optimization problem is approximately two to three times the cost of the equivalent analysis problem. Robust, optimal subsonic airfoil shapes. Boundary Layer Analysis Method The test section instrumentation consisted of epppler pressure taps, wake rakes, surface-mounted microphones, and skin-friction gauges. Diagrams illustrating supersonic flow and shock waves over the airfoil are shown. At the same time, a proper design of the nose shape epler required to avoid strong shock waves and prevent premature leading-edge stall.

The numerical results demonstrate superior performances airfoill the corrugated airfoil. Although this program is of great historical importance and one still finds current papers that refer to calculations made with PROFILE, it is not the program of choice for someone learning about airfoil plus boundary layer calculations.

Some of the design problems are discussed, concentrating on those problems associated with keeping the boundary layer laminar.
