There are plans to use the supercritical wing on the next generation of commercial aircraft so as to economize on fuel consumption by reducing drag. The top airfoil is an Epplerwhile the.

Airfoils having a Stratford pressure distribution, which has zero skin friction in the pressure recovery area, were investigated in an effort to develop high lift airfoils. In addition, the ramifications of the unbounded trailing edge pressure gradients generally present in the potential flow solution of the flow over an airfoil are examined, and the conditions airfooil to obtain a class of airfoils having finite trailing edge pressure gradients developed.

Computer-aided analysis and design of the shape rolling process for producing turbine engine airfoils. The design criteria are discussed. The design features are explained and the input data for the computer code are given for all airfoils.

Here the control law serves to provide computationally inexpensive gradient information to a standard numerical optimization method.

Several iteration options are included which allow the trailing edge angle to be specified while other parameters are iterated.

Wind turbine blades size has scaled-up during last years due to wind turbine platform increase especially for offshore applications. Based on perceived contributions to improving engine efficiency, the fan blade was chosen as the primary application for a more detailed assessment.

We include both the instantaneous ricchard time-averaged periodic formulations in this study. An approach to constrained aerodynamic design with application to airfoils.


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. Consequently, the anc optimization takes into account the aerodynamic torque in both clean and contaminated conditions. Glauert Model was adopted to design the standard blade and the bionic blade, respectively. The design space is then computationally searched in this direction; it is these searches that dominate the computation time.

Therefore, we have developed methods which can address airfoil design through either an analytic mapping or an arbitrary grid perturbation method applied to a finite volume discretization of the Euler equations. 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.

The objective of any optimization problem is to find the optimum of a cost function subject to a certain state equation governing equation of the flow field and certain side constraints. The pressure distribution in this method can be prescribed as a function of the arc length of the as-yet unknown body.

The artificial neural networks were integrated with a gradient-based optimizer. The active subspaces enable low-dimensional approximations of lift dafa drag that relate ad physical airfoil properties. Aerodynamic characteristics of two rotorcraft airfoils epplwr for application to the inboard region of a main rotor blade. Specific issues related to TMF behavior are presented and the associated ricuard on component life analysis and design is discussed.

As a part of a program of the NACA directed toward increasing the efficiency of compressors and turbines, data were obtained for application to the design of entrance vanes for axfax-flow compressors or turbines. 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.

This paper describes the implementation of optimization techniques based on control theory for airfoil design. 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 was achieved.


A numerical technique is presented for the design of two-dimensional supercritical wing sections with low wave drag. The structural configuration reduces internal stresses resulting from thermal expansion. A number of design studies are conducted to better understand the relation between airfoil shape and dynamic stall behavior.

Data and methods are given for rapidly obtaining the approximate pressure distributions for NACA four-digit, five-digit, 6- and 7-series airfoils. As in classical optimal control methods, the present approach introduces a costate variable Lagrange multiplier to evaluate the gradient of the cost function.

This approach would also allow for flatter acceleration regions which are more stabilizing for cross flow disturbances. 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.

The theory underlying the airfoil inversion technique developed by Eppler is discussed. Static pressure maps are created that can be used for structural analysis of the blades. 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.

A coupled system of the integral boundary layer and the Euler equations is solved desihn provide rapid flow simulations. In CFACS as in most of the older methods, one seeks a compromise between smoothing and exact fitting.
