报告题目：Study on two-element high lift airfoil for long endurance flight at low Reynolds numbers
报告人：Dr. Y D CUI (Temasek Laboratories, National University of Singapore)
Conventional high lift devices of airplane are of a compromise design between the requirements of optimal cruising and taking-off/landing conditions. The study on the high lift system’s aerodynamics remains in the forefront of research to achieve more efficient flight. In recent years, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been extensively studied and developed. Unlike commercial airplanes to pursue long range and speed, some UAVs usually look for long endurance for surveillance purpose. This requirement provides a chance for a two-element high lift airfoil being used for UAVs to achieve a longer endurance factor. In this talk, some of our preliminary studies on two-element airfoil design with wind tunnel test and numerical simulations will be presented and discussed.
