A supercritical airfoil is an airfoil designed, primarily, to delay the onset of wave drag in the transonic speed range. Supercritical airfoils are characterized by their flattened upper surface.
In this paper, a study on designing a thick supercritical airfoil by utilizing Takanashi’s inverse design method is discussed. One of the problems to design a thick supercritical airfoil by Takanashi’s method is that an oscillation of the geometry may occur during the iteration process. To reduce the oscillation, an airfoil parameterization method is utilized as the smoothing procedure. Get this from a library! Aerodynamic characteristics of two NASA supercritical airfoils with different maximum thicknesses. [Charles D Harris; Langley Research Center.; United States.

A supercritical airfoil is an airfoil designed, primarily, to delay the onset of wave drag in the transonic speed range. Supercritical airfoils are characterized by their flattened upper surface, highly cambered (curved) aft section, and larger leading edge radius compared with NACA 6-series laminar airfoil shapes. Standard wing shapes are designed to create lower pressure over the top of the. airfoils below (reproduced from his book, "Bird Flight as the Basis of Aviation") on a 7m diameter "whirling machine". Lilienthal believed that the key to successful flight was wing curvature or camber. He also experimented with different nose radii and thickness distributions.

A supercritical airfoil is an airfoil designed primarily to delay the onset of wave drag in the transonic speed range. Supercritical airfoils are characterized by their flattened upper surface, highly cambered ("downward-curved") aft section, and larger leading-edge radius compared with NACA 6-series laminar airfoil shapes.
Standard wing shapes are designed to create lower pressure over the. The NASA supercritical airfoil development program is summarized in a chronological fashion. Some of the airfoil design guidelines are discussed, and coordinates of a matrix of family related supercritical airfoils ranging from thicknesses of 2 to 18 percent and over a.
Introduction A concerted effort within the National Aero- nautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the ’s and ’s was directed toward develop- ing practical airfoils with two-dimensional transonic turbulent flow and improved drag divergence Mach numbers while retaining acceptable low-speed max- imum lift and stall characteristics and focused on a concept referred to as the supercritical airfoil.
Data for the NACA sections has been derived from the book Theory of Wing Sections, by Abbott and Von Doenhoff. Data for NASA supercritical (cambered) airfoil is extracted from NASA TM The app reports NASA supercritical airfoils book characteristics, lift curve and drag polar with a few inputs.
NASA supercritical airfoils at and off the design condition the experimental results for the 11%-thick representative airfoil shape defined by Table I will be presented. The variation of drag with Mach number for the design lift coefficient of is shown in figure 4.
The NACA Airfoils. The NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) airfoils were designed during the period from through under the direction of Eastman Jacobs at the NACA’s Langley Field Laboratory (now NASA Langley Research Center).

NASA Photo E An airfoil considered unconventional when tested in the early s by NASA at the Dryden Flight Research Center is now universally recognized by the aviation industry as a wing design that increases.
book Supercritical Wing Sections . In this period he made contact with Richard Whitcomb at NASA Langley who had experimentally developed a supercritical airfoil with a ﬂat topped shape and heavy rear camber which produced a comparatively weak shock at its design condition . Paul’s shock free airfoil had a similar though.

Russell M. Cummings, William H. Mason, Scott A. Morton, Harris, C.D., “NASA Supercritical Airfoils,” NASA TPMarch NACA airfoil development was virtually halted in as the aerodynamicists switched their attention to supersonic and hypersonic aerodynamics. But inRichard T. Whitcomb developed the NASA supercritical airfoil.
This was a revolutionary development, for it allowed the design of wings with high critical Mach numbers. 3/30/12 - Al Bowers from NASA Dryden Flight Research Center submitted the Boeing KC Winglet supercritical airfoil coordinates as designed by Richard T.
Whitcomb. 4/1/10 - Thanks to Christoph Hiemcke for catching a missing sign on the last few lower-surface trailing-edge points of. It is shown how the supercritical airfoil distinguishes itself in terms pressure distribution and drag behavior once transonic conditions are encountered.
Furthermore, it is demonstrated that transonic flow limitations can play a major role in the maximum lift coefficient of (multi-element) airfoils at Mach numbers as low as Review of NASA supercritical airfoils (ICAS paper) Unknown Binding – January 1, by Richard T Whitcomb (Author) See all formats and editions Hide other formats and editions.

Therefore, NASA signed a contract with the Courant Institute at New York University, whose mathematician Paul Garabedian and aerodynamicist Anthony Jameson worked with Whitcomb to develop a practical computational method for designing supercritical airfoils - those that were most efficient in the transonic range.
use of advanced NASA supercritical airfoil sections, there is still a demand for information on the NACA series of airfoil sections, which were developed over 50 years ago. Computer programs were developed in the early ’s to produce the ordinates for airfoils of any thickness, thickness distribution, or camber in the NACA airfoil series.
The tests showed the supercritical wing increased the F-8’s efficiency near the speed of sound by as much as 15 percent. Whitcomb’s supercritical wings were a success, and aircraft manufacturers and airlines were paying attention.
Technology Transfer. NASA presented its test data at a conference. Supercritical Airfoil Edit This section describes a completely different family of airfoils that were developed during the ’s and ’s by NASA strictly for the purpose to reduce the onset of drag due to the formation of standing shocks from local supersonic flows over the airfoil.
An extensive and excellent survey of the older airfoils is contained in the German book (available in English translation): Riegels, Airfoil Sections, Butterworths, London, (English language version) NASA supercritical airfoil development is described in the following references: Whitcomb, “Review of NASA Supercritical Airfoils,” ICAS.Aerodynamic shape optimization for the high-subsonic low-Reynolds-number flow regime represents an area of ongoing research.
The interaction between supercritical compressible flow and laminar boundary layer separation is not well understood due to the significant challenges associated with setting up relevant experimental work.8-ft High Speed Tunnel Log Book No.
