Inverse Design of a Thick Supercritical Airfoil
In this paper, a study on designing a thick supercritical airfoil by utilizing Takanashi's inverse design method is discussed. One of the problems to design a thick supercritical airfoil by Takanashi's method is that an oscillation of the geometry may occur during the iteration process. To reduce the oscillation, an airfoil parameterization method is utilized as the smoothing procedure. A guideline to determine the target pressure distribution to realize the thick airfoil is also discussed.
