Airfoil Design and Data – Richard Eppler – Google Books

This method determines a robust, optimal, subsonic airfoil shape, beginning with an arbitrary initial airfoil shape, and imposes the necessary constraints on the design. Springer-Verlag Berlin The development of cambered airfoil sections having favorable lift characteristics at supercritical Mach numbers.

Recent airfoil data for both flight and wind-tunnel tests have been collected and correlated insofar as possible. Significant results from the tests are that relatively small amounts of ice can have nearly as much effect on airfoil lift coefficient as much greater amounts of ice and that glaze ice usually has a more detrimental effect than either rime or mixed ice.

An approach to the constrained design of natural laminar flow 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.

From the aerodynamic point of view, thick airfoils are known to be very sensitive to surface contamination or turbulent inflow conditions. Large offshore wind turbines suffer high extreme loads due to their size, in addition the lack of noise restrictions allow higher tip speeds. These values are then automatically adjusted during the design process to satisfy the flow and geometric constraints.

In our previous work it was shown that control theory could be employed to devise effective optimization procedures for two-dimensional profiles by using the potential flow equation with either a conformal mapping or a general coordinate system.

A series of low-speed wind and water tunnel experiments were performed on the corrugated airfoilto validate the numerical results. Differential Evolution is a simple, fast, and robust evolutionary strategy that has been proven effective in determining the global optimum for several difficult optimization problems, including highly nonlinear systems with discontinuities and multiple local optima.

The design was accomplished using a physical plane, viscous, transonic inverse design procedure, and a constrained function minimization technique for optimizing the airfoil leading edge shape. For illustration purposes, the robust optimization method is used to solve a lift-constrained drag minimization problem for a two-dimensional 2-D airfoil in Euler flow with 20 geometric design variables.


Winglet airfoil section characteristics which significantly influence cruise performance and handling qualities of an airplane are discussed. Cp pressure coefficient, c airfoil chord, mm in.

A novel boundary value problem in the hodograph plane is studied that enables one to design a shockless airfoil so that its pressure distribution very nearly takes epplrr data that are prescribed. The present airfoil configuration further increases component life and reduces maintenance by reducing internal stress within the airfoil itself.

Scoping of shape changing airfoil concepts including both aerodynamic analysis and materials-related technology assessment effort was performed.

The coupling of the combined source vortex distribution of Green’s potential flow function with contemporary numerical techniques is shown to provide accurate, efficient, and stable solutions to subsonic inviscid analysis and design problems for multi-element airfoils. The airfoil can comprise a cavity having a cooling chamber bounded by an interior wall and an exterior wall so that ad can enter the cavity, pass through the pin array, and then epp,er to the cavity to thereby cool the airfoil.

It is shown that supercritical LFC airfoils with undercut front and rear lower surfaces, an upper surface static pressure coefficient distribution with an extensive low supersonic flat rooftop, a far upstream supersonic pressure minimum, and a steep subsonic rear pressure rise with suction or a slotted dwta flap could alleviate sweep-induced crossflow and attachment-line boundary-layer instability.

The design features are explained and the input data for the computer code are given for all airfoils.

A high fidelity transition prediction methodology has been applied to a swept airfoil design at a Mach number of 0. Almost all possible airfoil shapes can be created with these three families allowing for all possible configurations to be included.

Experimental results for the Eppler airfoil at low Reynolds numbers in the Langley low-turbulence pressure tunnel. A coupled system of the integral boundary layer and the Euler equations is solved to provide rapid flow qirfoil.

With this combined method, airfoils with prescribed boundary layer characteristics can be designed and airfoils with prescribed shapes can be analyzed.

Therefore, we have developed a andd which can address arbitrary geometric shapes through the use of a finite volume method to discretize the potential flow equation. Actual ice shapes obtained in these tests are also presented for these cases. Boundary Layer Analysis Method The flow condition is satisfied at the end points of the panels. Airfoil shape for epplee turbine nozzle.


Design analysis of vertical wind turbine with airfoil variation. The existence of a solution to a given pressure distribution is discussed. This computer-aided desifn CAD system is also capable of simulating the actual rolling process and thereby designing roll-pass schedule in rolling of an airfoil or similar shape. A low-dimensional active subspace, when present, identifies important directions in the space of design variables; perturbing a design along the active subspace associated with a particular quantity of interest changes that quantity more, on average, than perturbing the design orthogonally to the active subspace.

Airfoils permitting extensive laminar flow, such as the NACA 6-series airfoilshave desiyn lower drag coefficients at high speed and cruising lift coefficients than earlier types-of airfoils if, and only if, the wing surfaces are sufficiently smooth and fair.

Aerodynamic shape optimization of Airfoils in 2-D incompressible flow. However, the computer time for this method is relatively large because of the amount of computation required in the searches during optimization.

The displacement of this LEWICE predictions of ice shapes, in general, compared reasonably well with ice shapes obtained in the IRT, although differences in details of the ice shapes were observed. The EOLIA project Spanish Goverment funded project was focused on the design of large offshore wind turbines for deep waters. It is shown that the main factor influencing the averaged film cooling effectiveness in the showerhead region is the inclination of the injection holes.

Static Pressure and flow visualization data for the Eppler airfoil were also obtained. Two dimensional wind tunnel tests were conducted on a high speed natural laminar flow airfoil in both the Langley 6 x 28 inch Transonic Tunnel and the Langley Low Turbulence Pressure Tunnel. Consideration is given to the LFC airfoil model, the air-flow control system, epppler -surface instrumentation, liner design and hardware, and test options.
