bottom airfoils Flat
Previous — Next —. The attached image was borrowed from a Paraglider Design Handbook. By "real" I mean an airfoil that has been designed and tested by the aerospace industry. Trailing Edge - is its rear edge Chord or Chord Line - is a straight line connecting the leading and trailing edges of the airfoil and the value C represents its length.
Secrets that shouldn't be secret
This shape increases the camber of the rear section of the airfoil moving the center of lift aft, giving more gentle stall characteristics. BMatthews - do you mean that the trailing edge cap should be vertical grained like a shear web instead of running the span of the wing? Such a wing needs no trailing edge beam, main beam nor leading edge beam. You are commenting using your WordPress.
