A. Overview. Two-dimensional wind-tunnel experiments were performed using a low-speed closed-circuit wind tunnel with test-section dimensions of 42 × 60 in. at the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) with a maximum speed of mph, and a 20 × 28 in. open-circuit wind tunnel at the University of Maryland with a maximum speed of mph.

Note that this particular airfoil is here considered precisely because both numerical and experimental data in compressible, low Reynolds number flow conditions are readily available in Cited by: 2.

Case – Airfoil in a wind tunnel test section The easiest way to measure airfoil drag is in a wind tunnel. To avoid 3-D (tip) effects airfoils are mounted from wall to wall in the test section of a wind tunnel. Figure 7 – Schematic of an airfoil in a wind tunnel test section. Assumptions: Steady flow Incompressible flowFile Size: 3MB. While these results are interesting, if not surprising, it is not clear if such behavior is observed on aircraft that use the E airfoil. The stalling process of a wing can be much different from that of a two-dimensional wind-tunnel model and this may certainly affect the unsteady behavior. Airfoil information is used explicitly in the optimization process. Wind tunnel test data of several airfoils which are publicly available are collected and stored as an airfoil database. This database includes Lift, Drag and Angle of Attack data of many airfoils developed for or used in wind turbine applications [1, 2]. Volume of an airfoil. Ask Question Asked 6 years, 3 months ago.
