The final formed aerofoil is placed into a clipping press by the M-710iC robot and then placed onto a conveyor where it travels through a soak tunnel.
The second important design decision is the choice of the aerofoil shape.
From there, air emerges through a slot that directs it over the hoop's aerofoil surface.
The tilted aerofoil also helps form a barrier to reduce the risk of a fall.
The improvement of the aerodynamic performance of UAV/UCAVs can be achieved by optimising the aerofoil shapes for the aerofoil sections (2, 5, 8, 17, 22) and wing planform (3), (12, 13, 25).
Structural analysis of the aerofoil roof form was backed up by extensive wind tunnel testing using a 1:180 scale model made of aluminium and plexiglass.
The statistical analysis for both systems showed a shortening of the annulus and a smaller overall aerofoil shape.
ABSTRACT: In this paper, the indirect panel method is used to compute the velocity distribution over the surface of a symmetric aerofoil for which the exact result is present.
