2.23 Hydrofoils & Propellers
Exam #2
Friday April 27, 2007
1)
[25 pts] Using linearized 2D foil theory:
a)
Find the lift coefficient of a parabolic meanline is desired to be Cl = 0.25.
Find the camber height of fo/c if the foil is to be at ideal angle of attack.
b)
What is the maximum value of
γ
(x) and where does it occur?
c)
If the cavitation number for this foil is 0.5 will this foil cavitate at the
midchord? (show your work).
