Super Critical Airfoil

When an aircraft flies at subsonic speed (0 M to 0.8 M) the velocity of the air over the wing will be in the subsonic limit.

But an aircraft flies at transonic speed (0.8 M to 1.2 M) the velocity of the air over upper surface of the wing will reach supersonic speed (1.2 m to 5 m).

This supersonic speed will cause shock waves over the upper surface of the wing, the shock wave causes flow separation on the upper surface of the wing , This flow separation Continue reading “Super Critical Airfoil”
