Design of Transonic Airfoils and Wings Using a Hybrid Design Algorithm 871756

A method has been developed for designing airfoils and wings at transonic speeds. It utilizes a hybrid design algorithm in an iterative predictor/corrector approach, alternating between an analysis code and a design module. This method has been successfully applied to a variety of airfoil and wing design problems, including both transport and highly-swept fighter wing configurations. An efficient approach to viscous airfoil design and the effect of including static aeroelastic deflections in the wing design process are also illustrated.
