Giorgio Piatti, Airborne Systems' design manager, emphasised that the Hi-5 achieved a glide ratio very close to that of the Hi-Glide with a canopy that is both simpler to build and more intuitive for riggers to pack and jumpers to handle; the latter thanks in part to the GMS: "The glide modulation changes the airfoil section.
A bespoke rear wing gives the car enhanced visual presence and delivers powerful additional downforce, thanks notably to the structure of its airfoil section.
The leading edge is the part of the wing that first contacts the air; alternatively it is the foremost edge of an airfoil section.
However, each blade required two holes, which reduced the airfoil section and could generate significant notch stresses.
As this article's main text examines, this airfoil section could be at the wing root or tip, with predictable results affecting the airplane's stall characteristics.
0 X 106 Of Three Airfoil Sections Formed By Cutting Off Various Amounts From The Rear Portion Of The NACA 0012 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.
