MAE 3241: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics Name: _________________ April 9, 2010 Exam #2 Short problems 1-3 are worth 5 points each. Question 1 (5 points): Anderson clearly articulates that without friction there could be no lift on airfoils and wings in real life , and he goes on to say that, ‘ Nature enforces the Kutta condition by means of friction ’. In our development of thin airfoil theory we mathematically enforced a Kutta condition at the trailing edge of the airfoil, γ (TE)=0. Was a Kutta condition also enforced for the potential flow model of a rotating cylinder generating lift (why or why not)? Question 2 (5 points): Show below is a picture of a thick airfoil being modeled by a suitable distribution of vorticies located along the top and bottom surfaces. In Chapter 3 the Kutta-Joukowski Lift Theorem (KJLT) was derived exactly for the case of the lifting cylinder. We also stated (without much proof) that the KJLT also applies in general to a two-dimensional body of arbitrary shape. Although this result can be proven mathematically,

### 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.

• 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.

• 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.
