Abstract or Summary
  • Airfoil flow simulation tests were carried out in a 20-inch diameter double layer circular electrolytic tank. Results of the tests indicate that the tank very closely approximates ideal conditions. The double layer circular electrolytic tank is shown to generate a very large rectangular tank. Formulas were derived to show that this double layer tank is valid for the analogy between fluid velocity and voltage gradient. Tests were performed on a five inch diameter cylindrical model. The first series of tests was performed with the ground plane very far from the model surface. Electrical current to the model was adjusted so that circulation and lift could be calculated for different angles of stagnation point on the model. The second series of tests was performed with suitable electrodes so the model would be near the ground plane. The purpose of these tests was to investigate how circulation, lift, and effective velocity varied when model to ground plane distance was varied. The appendix contains data in a format similar to that in which it was used in the ALWAC IIIE computer to obtain numerical results. AIso in the appendix are results of investigations on circular airfoils made by other investigators using conducting sheets and a wind tunnel. A discussion of equipment used and improvements that could be made is included.
