  • A multipoint inverse method has been developed for the design of multielement airfoils with desired velocity distributions in incompressible potential flow. The method uses an isolated-airfoil, multipoint, inverse code to generate each element of the multielement airfoil and a two-dimensional panel method to analyze the multielement airfoil. Through Newton iteration, the variables associated with the design of the elements in isolation are adjusted to achieve desired multielement velocity… CONTINUE READING
