SET OF 2 NACA 0012 AEROFOILS

A set of two aerofoils. One aerofoil has a span that extends the full width of the working section of the Subsonic Wind Tunnel (AF1450S). This model has the characteristics of a two-dimensional aerofoil. The other aerofoil has a span that extends for half of the working section of the wind tunnel. This model has the characteristics of a threedimensional aerofoil. Comparing the measured lift and

drag of the two aerofoils shows the differences between two-dimensional and three-dimensional aerofoils.

Using a Pitot tube, students can traverse the aerofoil wake of the full-width aerofoil. This gives them the downstream pressure distribution to find the drag on the aerofoil. They can compare their results to direct measurements from a balance (available separately).

Students can compare the results from the full-width aerofoil with the tapped aerofoil model (AF1450b, available separately) as it has the same (NACA0012) section.

TecQuipment’s Smoke Generator (AFA11, not included) increases the educational value of the experiments by showing the flow of air around the model.

SUPPORTING PRODUCTS
VDAS AF1450S - Package

An open circuit suction subsonic wind tunnel with a working section of 450 mm by 450 mm and 1000 mm long. Package includes the Aerofoil with Tappings, a Three-Component Balance, two Differential Pressure Transducers, a 32-Way Pressure Display Unit and data acquisition (VDAS-F).

AF12 - Experiment

An experimental module for use with the AF10 Air Flow Bench to provide experiments that measure and compare the effects of drag force on objects mounted in an airstream that have the same projected frontal area but different shape. Facilities to compare drag force measurement methods are included.

AFA7 - Ancillary

A traversing Pitot-static tube with electronic position measurement for use with TecQuipment’s Subsonic Wind Tunnels (AF1300, AF1450, AF1600).
