What does increasing or variing of the airfoil thickness, location of maximum thickness, nose radius or the transition location influence in the properties of an airfoil ?
What were the problems in the developement of first laminar airfoils and how were they solved ?
Which problems are remaining until today ?
How can friction drag be reduced ?
Order a laminar, a fully turbulent and a laminar-turbulant graph in a diagram ?
What description do the axises have ?
How are the airfoils for reentry objects like the space shuttle built ?
Where does the shock bow occour ?
In which 5 points does a real, swept wing of finite aspect ratio/wingspan differ in its performance characteristics from those of a wing airfoil ?
What ist the target in the procedure of wing design ?
Name 5 issues !
How can the procedure be described ?
Name a positive and a negative aspect of a high Taper Ratio (lamda > 0) according to the lift distribution !
What is desired by selecting the Taper Ratio ?
What is Twist ?
How can Twist be used to selectively influence the lift distribution of the wing ?
