C) Circular cylinder at low Re. For pattern at higher Re, see Fig. 14. (d) Aerofoil section at moderate incidence and low Re The wake Behind any body moving in air is a wake, just as there is a wake behind a ship. Although the wake in air is not normally visible it may be felt, as when, for example, a bus passes by. The total drag of a body appears as a loss of momentum and increase of energy in this wake. The loss of momentum appears as a reduction of average flow speed, while the increase of energy is seen as violent eddying (or vorticity) in the wake.

23) 38 Aerodynamics for Engineering Students --- Ao f proximate edge wake Fig. 17 The behaviour of smoke filaments in the flows past various bodies, showing the wakes. (a) Normal flat plate. In this case the wake oscillates up and down at several cycles per second. Half a cycle later the picture would be reversed, with the upper filaments curving back as do the lower filaments in this sketch. (b) Flat plate at fairly high incidence. (c) Circular cylinder at low Re. For pattern at higher Re, see Fig.

The slope of the straight portion of the curve is called the two-dimensional lift-curve slope, (dCL/da), or a,. 1). 66) The value of C ,, is a very important characteristic of the aerofoil since it determines the minimum speed at which an aeroplane can fly. 5. The corresponding value of aswould be around 18". Curves (b) and (c) in Fig. 23 are for sections that have the same thickness distribution but that are cambered, (c) being more cambered than (b). e. to shift the whole lift curve somewhat to the left, with negligible change in the value of the lift-curve slope, or in the shape of the curve.
