    • Aerodynamic Design for Swept-wing Laminar Flow 

      Belisle, Michael Joseph (2013-11-08)
      This work describes and compares processes for swept-wing laminar flow control (SWLFC) aerody-namic design. It focuses on results obtained during the preliminary outer-mold-line (OML) design of the Subsonic Aircraft ...
    • Laminar Flow Control Flight Experiment Design 

      Tucker, Aaron 1975- (2012-11-29)
      Demonstration of spanwise-periodic discrete roughness element laminar flow control (DRE LFC) technology at operationally relevant flight regimes requires extremely stable flow conditions in flight. A balance must be struck ...
    • Laminar-Turbulent Transition Due to 2-D Excrescences at 1% Chord on a Swept Wing 

      Crawford, Brian Keith (2015-01-22)
      Laminar flow has the potential to dramatically reduce fuel consumption and/or extend the range of modern aircraft. However, before laminar-flow aircraft can be made practical, the effect of surface imperfections must be ...
