A symmetrical airfoil has been constructed by local linearization method. A single-point objective function is defined to check the convergence of the method. As an example, the nose and tail zone of supercritical airfoil is fixed and a flat line is placed between them. The optimizable element of the airfoil contour was conjoined with the nose and tail elements of fixed shape at the sections with coordinates xs1= 0.11 and xs2= 0.66, respectively. The optimizable part of airfoil (the fixed chord line) is divided into N=55 segments. The convergence of this method has been shown with the airfoil constructed with higher critical Mach number rather than the initial airfoil. Finally, this airfoil has been compared with the supercritical airfoil NASA SC (2)-0012 at M∞=0.76. At the second part, several airfoils have been constructed and simulated over different Subsonic and Transonic Mach numbers. Finally, the drag coefficient on constructed airfoils have been compared with supercritical airfoil.
