Abstract

A software package (called SRISTI) for the design and analysis of NLF airfoils is described. As an illustration, an NLF airfoil for NAL's Light Transport Aircraft has been designed using this package. Its aerodynamic characteristics have been extensively compared with GAW-2 airfoil and also with wind tunnel experiments.
