Problem 1. 25 points Part a) NACA 2412: 2% camber +1 point 12% thickness +1 point Angle of Attack (°) cl (from FoilSim) cl (from charts) % Error cd (from FoilSim) cd (from charts) % Error 4 0.735 0.65 13.077 0.02 0.006 233.333 8 1.218 1.08 12.778 0.03 0.009 233.333 Summary of results +4 points The coefficient of lift values generated by FoilSim are reasonably close to the accepted values. The coefficient of drag values, however, are off by a factor of 10.

Correct decision based on information: +5 points Part c) The results from part b will need to be independently verified, perhaps in a wind tunnel test, since the validation of the program in part a cast doubt on the reliability of the program. Discussion of trustworthiness of program: +4 points
