Circulation and Generation of Lift Consider superposition of uniform flow and a circulating flow We seek the appropriate combination of elementary solutions of Laplace’s equation which will yield a streamline coinciding with the desired airfoil shape Fig. 6.1 2
Starting Vortex Consider an airfoil at rest in a quiescent fluid. The circulation contintegraltext vector v · vector ds = 0 The flow is accelerated to U A starting vortex forms and is swept downstream. The circulation about the airfoil becomes finite (and hence lift is generated). The circulation around the airfoil is equal and opposite to the circulation around the starting vortex (Kelvin’s Theorem) Fig. 6.2 3

Circulation Potential flow past a 2-D airfoil has an infinite number of possible solutions that satisfy the boundary conditions Experiments indicate that the flow leaves the trailing edge as shown at the right provided the airfoil is not stalled This is the Kutta condition and only one potential flow solution satisfies this condition Fig. 6.3 4
General Thin Airfoil Theory Assumptions Two-dimensional Incompressible Irrotational Steady Neglect airfoil thickness Maximum camber is small compared to chord Represent camber line by line vortices Fig. 6.4 5

General Thin Airfoil Theory The component of the freestream velocity normal to the airfoil at P is U , n = U sin( α δ P ) where δ P is the slope δ P = tan - 1 dz dx and thus U , n = U sin( α tan - 1 dz dx ) Fig. 6.5 8
General Thin Airfoil Theory Thus, the boundary condition vector v · vector n = 0 on the airfoil is U sin( α tan - 1 dz dx ) + V s , n = 0 where V s , n = 1 2 π integraldisplay c o γ ( ξ ) cos δ 2 cos δ 3 d ξ ( x ξ ) cos δ 1 Fig. 6.5 9

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
