Verification of advanced simplified HLFC concept with variable porosity


The main objectives of this topic are:
• Verification and validation of the aerodynamic and structural design of the advanced, simplified Tailored Skin Single Duct (TSSD) HLFC suction segment, featuring variable porosity and an easily demountable leading edge in low-cost design.
• Realization (design, manufacturing, calibration and application) of a high-precision mass flow measurement, necessary for the validation of single suction duct concepts within wind tunnel tests.
• Investigation of “natural transpiration” effects (adverse off-design condition) Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
