A bespoke rear wing gives the car enhanced visual presence and delivers powerful additional downforce, thanks notably to the structure of its airfoil section.
This insight spurred the development of our 3DS blade, in which the airfoil section changes along the length of the blade to match the complex 3D flow field.
Four sensors on the machine provide a full 360 deg coverage of the airfoil section.
The challenge was to design an airfoil section that had one characteristic flying forward and a different characteristic flying backward.
As the airfoil section of fan blade design is diversified and complex, traditionally it took a long period of time to complete the 3D modeling for fan blades.
The stereolithography process it was experimented (Landrum, 1997) to manufacturing a NACA 0012 airfoil section.
Four sensors on the machine provide 360 deg coverage of the airfoil section, and the sensor system can collect up to 20,000 data points per second.
Dowty Propellers' advanced propeller system on the Bombardier Q400 turboprop incorporates six all-composite blades with an advanced swept design and optimized airfoil sections.
For this study, optimization parameters are chosen as chord, twist and airfoil sections for each blade element.
