Abstract:

Pressure distributions on seven quasi-elliptical profiles were calculated with Sells method, using different mesh sizes and smoothing parameters. The results are compared with Boerstoels results obtained with Nieuwlands method for design flow conditions. Some results for off-design conditions are included. The report also gives some indication of the proper use of the Sells method. Only plots of the pressure distributions are included in the report. Author
