    • 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 ...
    • Computational Evaluation of a Transonic Laminar-Flow Wing Glove Design 

      Roberts, Matthew William (2012-07-16)
      The aerodynamic benefits of laminar flow have long made it a sought-after attribute in aircraft design. By laminarizing portions of an aircraft, such as the wing or empennage, significant reductions in drag could be ...
    • Design of an Instrumentation System for a Boundary Layer Transition Wing Glove Experiment 

      Williams, Thomas 1987- (2012-08-23)
      Laminar flow control holds major promise for increasing aircraft efficiency and increasing laminar flow over aerodynamic surfaces could decrease drag by up to 30 percent. The Flight Research Lab at Texas A&M University has ...
    • 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 ...
