Measurements of buffeting on slender wing models by Dennis G. Mabey Download PDF EPUB FB2
The rms wing buffeting signals on all four wings were measured on a spectrum analyser (the tuned signals were measured with 6$ bandwidth). To avoid overstressing models 3 snd 4 (9 and 30 lb msxknum lift respectively) the steady lift and pitching mament at every kinetic pessure were monitared.

Buffeting response of the flexible fin was investigated by measuring fin vibration levels with a tip accelerometer.
The location of the accelerometer is shown in Fig. 1 (a). It is located at a vertical distance of mm above the wing surface.
The measurement uncertainty for the tip acceleration is estimated as 2%.Cited by: Opportunities for the integrated use of measurements and computations for the understanding of delta wing aerodynamics Aerospace Science and Technology, Vol.

In slender thin wing theory this is replaced by k2 ai3 an = Vax (4) at a point P' on some plane near to the surface of the wing. See Fig The c-plane is transformed into a T plane (T = Y + iZ) such that the section becomes a circle of radius r.
See Fig If thz section were a slit the transformation would be. Vortex breakdown, vortex interactions, and vortex shedding, either alone or in combination, play an important role in wing and fin buffeting, although vortex breakdown is the main source of buffeting over slender wings.

The flight test measurements of vortex breakdown location are in good agreement with the wind and water tunnel measurements even though there is an order of magnitude variation in the Reynolds number.
This is consistent with the observations made on sharp-edge delta wing models. Download: Download full-size image; Fig. Abstract. Measurements of wing buffeting, using root strain gages, were made in the NASA Langley m cryogenic wind tunnel to refine techniques which will be used in larger cryogenic facilities such as the United States National Transonic Facility (NTF) and the European Transonic Wind Tunnel (ETW).
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite Reston, VA Visualization and measurements of aerodynamic effects on a 2D-wing-profile and a rotating delta-wing model were conducted using an optical pressure measurement system based on the pressure.
There are surprisingly little force data on low-sweep delta wings in the literature. Compared with more slender planforms, nonslender wings have lower maximum lift coefficient and also lower stall angle.
Fig. 2 shows the variation of lift coefficient for delta wings with various sweep angles in the range of Λ=45–76°, adapted from Earnshaw and Lawford's data.
Experiments with varying wing sweep angle showed that jet blowing was as effective in attenuating fin buffeting for less slender wings. Wind-tunnel experiments also showed that the nozzle geometry. Modern fighter aircraft are subject to high angle of attack maneuvers extending the flight envelope to the stall and post-stall r wing geometries, e.g.
delta wing geometries, strakes, and leading-edge extensions (LEXs), respectively, are used to generate strong large-scale vortices shed at the highly swept leading-edge vortices improve significantly the.
A slender wing is represented by a vortex model and is discussed next. (c) Slender-wing representation The classical approach is developed by thinking of a discretization of the vortex sheet by a number of horseshoe vortices.
Lighthill (, fig p. ), Batchelor (, figurep. ) and Katz & Plotkin (, figurep. A method has been developed for computing aerodynamic loads on slender missiles with complicated cross‐sections. This method has been applied to the prediction of loads for missiles with folding wings.
Comparison of theoretical calculations with supersonic wind‐tunnel measurements indicates that the method should provide satisfactory first estimates of the aerodynamic properties of. The Abrupt Wing Stall (AWS) at moderate Angle-of-Attacks (AoA) and transonic flight conditions can result in uncommanded lateral motions such as heavy wing, wing drop and wing rock that degrade handling qualities, mission performance and safety of flight for the aircraft.
This phenomenon caused by asymmetric wing flows makes it difficult to perform precision tracking or. —Since flow separation occurs readily from a highly swept leading edge, but gives rise in general to a steady flow, it is proposed that the rational approach to the aerodynamic design of slender wings is to attempt to control, rather than to suppress, these separations.
Airfoil thickness is simply the percentage of the wing chord that the airfoil is deep at it's thickest point. For example a wing having a chord of 15" that has a 10% thick airfoil will be /2" (") thick. How thick should the airfoil be.
For a rectangular wing, this reduces to the ratio of the span to the chord length (c): High aspect ratio wings have long spans (like high performance gliders), while low aspect ratio wings have either.
In the mid s computer speed and storage had developed to a degree that Euler methods (Model 8 in Table /_1#Tab3) became a viable tool for aerodynamic design work. expected to provide reliable pressure data for the prediction of the buffeting response of the F vertical tail.

Buffeting analysis plays an important role in the wind-resistant design of long-span bridges. While computational methods have been widely used in the study of self-excited forces on bridge sections, there is very little work on applying advanced simulation to buffeting analysis.
The root cause of wing rock is investigated by examining two slender delta wings ( and sweep back angle) in wind tunnel using force measurement, pressure measurement and PIV techniques.
The results show presence of asymmetric flow at angle of attack and initiation of wing rock at the same point for model while there is neither asymmetric flow nor wing rock for model. The Shorty version is available for some models and is designed to reduce buffeting and improve warm-weather comfort.
They’re made in the USA, and prices range from $ to $ from vortex shedding and / or buffeting from existing adjacent and planned adjacent high rise towers. The first step in the design process was the development of a concept model. The choice of system was less important at this stage.
The structural properties were. A method of analysis based on slender-wing theory is developed to investigate the characteristics in roll of slender cruciform wings and wing-body combinations. The method makes use of the conformal mapping processes of classical hydrodynamics which transform the region outside a circle and the region outside an arbitrary arrangement of line.Consider uniform, steady potential flow past a slender wing.
By considering a horse-shoe vortex in the limit as y/Us -+ oo, where 7 is the circulation, U is the uniform stream velocity and s is the span, a model representing a vortex sheet is obtained from which the lift on the slender wing .Wings 3.
