Design and Development of a Facility for Compressible Dynamic Stall Studies of a Rapidly Pitching Airfoil
MetadataShow full item record
A facility for the study of dynamic stall of an airfoil undergoing a transient ramp type pitching motion is described. The facility can produce pitch rates of 3600 degrees/sec, to an angle of attack of 60 degrees by using a specially designed hydraulic drive with feedback control. A unique airfoil support system allows unobstructed flow visualization including the complete airfoil contour, thus permitting the use of non-intrusive optical diagnostic methods for flow measurement close to the surface as well as simultaneous far field measurements. Schlieren results obtained with this facility are presented.
