This paper presents a solution for enhancement of aerodynamic efficiency for asymmetric airfoils. In order to increase the lift and reduce the drag forces for a blade segment, a groove was created on its surface. There were carried out experiments consisting in the analysis of two asymmetric airfoil segments of the same type in the wind tunnel. One segment was designed with the groove and the other without it. The optimum location of the groove was determined by means of CFD analysis. Simulation results were compared to test results and the CFD analysis model was validated.
