Well for anyone else who stumbles upon this and needs the answer look at the difference between the lift coefficient vs. angle of attack graph for viscid vs. inviscid flow, and consider how the coefficient of pressure affects the lift coefficient.
Homework Statement
What effect does a large positive dCp/dX have on the real viscous flow? This is for an airfoil design project using thin airfoil theory + vortex panel method.
The Attempt at a Solution
As far as I know Viscosity is independent of pressure, so the only thing I can...
Easiest way to describe this is to draw a picture of what's happening, then draw a free-body diagram next to it. On the free-body diagram draw all the contact forces first (ie everything that is physically touching it), second draw all the non-contact forces, which for your purposes will only...
I am doing a project for my aerodynamics class, basically its a simplified version of the thin airfoil theory + vortex paneling method; and I have been asked the following the question: What effect does a large positive dCp/dX (Cp=Pressure Coefficient, x=position) have on the real viscous flow...
