Kijoselo is on a distinguished road
Hello, i am a mechanical engineering student who is developing his degree work using a silhouette optimization to a NACA 2411 profile (base profile), i generate some combinations that modify the upper and lower curvature, in addition, i vary the angle of the tail (Everything i have been developing in Python until now). I managed to get to the combinations and i have all the necessary profiles but I find myself with the problem of calculating or finding the forces that affect the profile, i mean i can't find a way to calculate an approximate Cl and Cd to get the best profile, i discarded the idea to connect Ansys or CFD programs because it would be a high consumption, therefore, i am looking for a formula or mathematical process to find approximately five profiles to rectify them in a complete simulation, i hope you can help me because reviewing literature, they have not helped me, the method of "Thin Airfoil Theory" does not work for me because my profiles are asymmetrical and the panel method has become very tedious, i hope for your help and good day :c
