The craft was an "airfoil" design.
The end result of this study was that Airbus had a set of airfoil designs that are suited to a very large wing-body aircraft.
Years of research and experience with the unusual conditions of supersonic flow have led to some interesting conclusions about airfoil design.
Turbine blades are shaped a lot like airplane wings - they use an airfoil design.
Backward Curve - These fans have efficiencies nearly as high as the airfoil design.
As design evolved HPC design improved through better airfoil design.
These data formed the basis for many World War II airfoil designs.
Construction of solid airfoil designs requires inflexible materials such as metals or composites.
Chapter 2 regards airfoil design generally.
I've seen some variable airfoil designs, but they're all clumsy and impractical.
