Glen W. Zumwalt and Sharad N. Naik, An analytical model for highly separated flow on airfoils at low speeds (Wichita, KS: Department of Aeronautical Engineering, Wichita State University, 1977), 106 leaves.
A computer program has been developed to solve the low speed flow around airfoils with highly separated flow. A new flow model, which was suggested by Zumwalt , included all of the major physical features in the separated region. It was suggested by experimental airfoil studies made in the WSU low speed wind tunnel. Flow visualization tests also were made which gave substantiation to the validity of the model. The computation involves the matching of the potential flow, boundary layer and flows in the separated regions.
Consists largely of Sharad N. Naik's doctoral dissertation at Wichita State University/[University of Kansas] carried out under the guidance of Prof. Glen W. Zumwalt
