On the Importance of Appropriately Representing Uncertainty in Robust Airfoil Optimization are set to a = 2, b = 2 and the range is over [-1,1], and when interval analysis is used these same bounds, [-1,1], are used. These forms of u are illustrated in figure 2.

The focus of this chapter is on the shape optimization of the Busemann-type biplane airfoil for drag reduction under both non-lifting and lifting conditions using genetic algorithms. The concept of biplane airfoil was first introduced by Adolf Busemann in Under design conditions at a specific supersonic flow speed, the Busemann biplane airfoil eliminates all wave drag due to Cited by: 1. The transonic case was also considered as most commercial airliners fly near Mach one. It is shown that the section deformation can be effective in reducing the drag .

To reduce pitching moment and drag coefficient under dynamic stall condition, a new airfoil has been optimized based on the OA airfoil by employing the present optimal method. Due to the inhibition of leading edge vortex, the peaks of pitching moment and drag coefficient of the optimized airfoil are decreased about % and % at point 1 Cited by: A practical procedure for the design of low-drag supersonic airfoils is demonstrated, using an optimization program based on a gradient algorithm coupled with an aerodynamic analysis program which incorporates a unitary compression/ expansion formula for inviscid C p distribution valid over a wide range of supersonic Mach numbers. Results are presented for low-drag Cited by: 5.

ROBUST AIRFOIL OPTIMIZATION TO ACHIEVE CONSISTENT DRAG REDUCTION OVER A MACH RANGE * WU Lit, LUC HUYSE$, AND SHARON PADULA§ Abstract. We prove mathematically that in order to avoid point-optimization at the sampled design points for multipoint airfoil optimization, the number of design points must be greater than the number of free.

Robust Airfoil Optimization to Achieve Consistent Drag Reduction Over a Mach Range Wu Li Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia Luc Huyse ICASE, Hampton, Virginia Sharon Padula NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia ICASE NASA Langley Research Center Hampton, Virginia Operated by Universities Space Research Association August   An airfoil shape optimization method that reduces drag over a range of free stream Mach numbers is sought.

Well, I guess the way to do it is to test each airfoil at a range of AoA, and select the best for that airfoil. An airfoil shape optimization method that reduces drag over a range of free stream Mach numbers is sought.

We show that one acceptable choice is a weighted multipoint optimization method using more. The optimization scheme adjusts design variables to optimize the objective function.

For this project, we chose to maximize the average of CL/CD at three different angles of attack. Using the average of three different points helps to achieve good performance over a range of angles of attack.
