Unformatted text preview: Spring 2004 Unified Engineering Fluids Problems F1 F1a. An aircraft’s wing is at zero angle of attack when all wheels are on the ground. Qualitatively describe the flow b ehind the wing airfoil a short time after landing touchdown. Assume 2-D flow. F1b. A short time after starting its motion at speed V , a 2-D airfoil of chord c has a circulation �, and its starting vortex is some distance d � c downstream. The fluid is incompressible and inviscid. Determine the c� and cd of the airfoil, by convention taken p erpendicular and parallel to the direction of travel. How do these change in time? Hint: First determine the apparent freestream flow velocity vector (magnitude and direction) seen by the airfoil. V � d ...
