Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Analyze airfoil test results.

Definition

Analysis should include
  • changing parameters independently
  • measuring lift and drag
  • conducting a material analysis
  • locating the center of gravity/determining balance.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What is the correlation between lift and drag in the test results?
  • Why is it necessary to balance the airfoil?
  • What effect would using a different material have on the airfoil design?
