Mean Velocity in the Asymmetric near Wake Behind a GAW(2) Airfoil
Department of Mathematics and Computational Sciences, BIUST, Palapye, Botswana
The two-dimensional asymmetric near wake behind a GAW(2) airfoil section is studied at low speeds. Mean velocity measurements have been made in the near wake. Mean velocity profiles in the near wake are presented. Also integral parameters based on the mean velocity profiles have been presented here. In the near wake region mean velocity profiles are seen to exhibit symmetry within a distance of about 60 trailing edge momentum thicknesses downstream of the trailing edge.
