Statistical Optimization of the Increase of Aerodynamic Effectiveness and Efficiency at Low Reynold

by David Grant


Submitted : Fall 2010

The addition of texture to the surface of a wing will create stability at low airspeed and increase the energy of the air flowing about the wing at such speeds.  The depth and shape of the 'dimple' in the surface must be determined by statistical data for specific make and model aircraft in order to optimize the performance of the texturing.  The surface texturing will add surface area and energy to the wing surface because of the semi-turbulent flow.
