Mean Velocity Charateristics in the Far Wake behind a GAW(2) Airfoil
Department of Mathematics and Computational Sciences, BIUST, Palapye, Botswana
The two-dimensional asymmetric far wake behind a GAW(2) airfoil section is studied at low speeds. Mean velocity measurements have been made and analysed in the far wake, where initial asymmetric wake has become symmetric with respect to the minimum velocity line. Governing equations have been solved with appropriate boundary conditions in the far wake. Self-similarity solutions have been obtained for the governing equations for the mean velocity distributions. Results of self-similarity analysis have been compared with experimental data.
