Design and Development of a Compressible Dynamic Stall Facility
MetadataShow full item record
A dynamic stall facility offering a unique new capability for studies of compressibility effects on dynamic stall is described. This facility features complete visual access by mounting the test airfoil between optical quality glass windows that are rotated in unison to produce the oscillating airfoil motion associated with helicopter rotor dynamic stall. By using the density gradients associated with the rapidly changing dynamic stall flowfield, this facility permits simultaneous detailed investigation of the flow on the surface as well as in the flowfield surrounding airfoils experiencing dynamic stall.
