airfoil design- input x and CP. output y OR input Qspec
 
Hey guys. so my team and i are trying to do a full inverse design on a high lift wing. we are currently finding and calculating a rooftop pressure distribution with respect to x, but are looking for a program that can do explicitly give us y values for an airfoil. any ideas? we have tried xfoil, javafoil, and are looking into others. Also, is there any way we can imput Qspec?? that would help alot!


Thanks!!

Dear gcjin07;

Could you please provide me about how to perform an inverse design. I am trying to understand the calculations of the inverse design.

Thank you very much

could you please tell me the inputs required to design an aerofoil ?:confused:

The input is the airfoil surface velocity distribution satisfying three global/integral ("Lighthill") constraints.
