Transonic airfoil design for helicopter rotor applications.

Richard Epplerc. Thick airfoil families with desirable aerodynamic performance with minimal richsrd induced noise. High efficiency in reaching the optimum solution is achieved by using a multigrid technique and updating the shape in a hierarchical manner such that smooth low-frequency changes are done separately from high-frequency changes.

Examples of application znd ultralight airplanes, canards, and sailplanes with flaps are given. A wind tunnel investigation was conducted to determine the 2-D aerodynamic characteristics of two new rotorcraft airfoils designed especially for application to the inboard region of a helicopter main rotor blade.

The data may also be applied to the design of air brakes and spoilers. The Eppler program, an inverse conformal mapping technique where the x and y coordinates of the airfoil are developed from a given velocity distribution, was used. The new airfoil ‘s boundary layer stability characteristics are determined, and this iterative process continues until an airfoil is designed that meets the laminar flow requirement and as many of the other constraints as possible. Thesis, Pennsylvania State Univ.

Design and Optimization Method for Multi-Element. The Eppler airfoil was focused on at a chord Reynolds number ofand an angle of attack of 2 deg. Airfoil shape for a turbine nozzle. The two phenomena known to have great impact on the overall rotor performance are: The numerical results demonstrate superior performances of the dezign airfoil.

Using resolvent analysis dseign the design of separation control on a NACA airfoil. By using multiple parametric airfoilsit can be assumed that all reasonable airfoil configurations are included in the analysis and optimization and that a global and not local maximum is found. The theory underlying the airfoil inversion technique developed by Eppler is discussed.


The hardware developed comprises a spanned airfoil between schleiren windows, a four bar linkage, flywheels, a drive system and a test section structure. A percent-thick, slotted, natural-laminar-flow SNLF airfoilthe S, for general aviation applications has been designed and analyzed theoretically and verified experimentally in the Langley Low-Turbulence Pressure Tunnel.

According to the deskgn, the Rascal uses an airfoil married from two Eppler airfoils.

These options permit the analysis of airfoils having variable chord variable geometrya boundary layer displacement iteration, and the analysis of the effect of anv roughness elements. The flow constraints currently available are lift, wave drag, pitching moment, pressure epplet, and local pressure levels.

Topics covered include the partial differential equations of transonic flow, the computational procedure and results; the design procedure; a convergence theorem; and description of the code. A theory was developed; an eight-stage axial-flow compressor was designedconstructed, and tested.

Airfoil Design and Data

An airfoil design procedure, applicable to both subcritical and supercritical airfoilsis described. Virtually all new blades built in this country today use these advanced airfoil designs.

The test conditions consisted of Mach numbers ranging from 0. The thrusts of the method are its ability to calculate a target N-Factor distribution that forces the flow to undergo transition at the desired location; the target-pressure-N-Factor relationship that is used to reduce the N-Factors in order to prolong transition; and its ability to design airfoils to meet lift, pitching moment, thickness and leading-edge radius constraints while also being able to meet the natural laminar flow constraint.

The high-lift performance of a multi-element airfoil was optimized by using neural-net predictions that were trained using a computational data set. Advanced technology airfoil research, volume 1, part 2. Results show the airfoil to have good drag rise characteristics over a wide range of normal-force coefficients with no measurable shock losses up to the Mach numbers at which drag divergence occurred for normal-force coefficients up to 0. The second program, ROLPAS, predicts the stresses, roll separating force, the roll torque and the details of metal flow by simulating the rolling aairfoil, using the slab method of analysis.


TMF design considerations in turbine airfoils of advanced turbine engines. One cycle of the target desired pressure-averaging procedure was used to design two new airfoils that reduced the objective function and came close to satisfying airdoil constraints.

Typically, five iteration cycles are required for convergence. Trailing edge flow conditions as a factor in airfoil design. The program and its input options are described. This report presents results from the first icing tests performed in the Modem Airfoils program.

Some of the ad design guidelines are discussed, and coordinates of a matrix of family related supercritical airfoils ranging from thicknesses of 2 to 18 percent and over a design lift sirfoil range from 0 to 1. Measurements in the same wind tunnel richaard comparable Reynolds numbers indicated that the maximum normal-force coefficient of the RC N -1 airfoil was higher than that of the NACA airfoil for Mach numbers above about 0.

The drag divergence Mach number of this new airfoil was higher than that of the SC airfoil at normal-force coefficients above 0.

This rihcard reflects the author’s experience in developing a computer program for the application of potential flow and boundary layer theories to the design and analysis of subsonic airfoils, including the evaluation of total lift, drag, and moment coefficients. The displacement of this A method has been developed for designing families of airfoils in which the members of a family have the same basic type of pressure distribution but vary in thickness ratio or lift, or both.

A description of the analysis and design method is presented, along with supporting examples.
