Wing profile performance variations influenced by manufacturing tolerances
2013 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The sensitivity of wing profile performance metrics as a function of manufacturing tolerances and operational environment influence was studied using a numerical simulation. By employing a Monte-Carlo approach of varying the geometrical properties of a set of wing profiles, the sensitivity and statistical response was found, which in turn gives an indication towards both the most critical geometrical features and to which airfoil is the most robust with respect to constructions errors and operational fouling.
