Experimental and theoretical aSsessmenT of laminaR flow rObusteness at high mach and reynolds numbers

Project description

Aerodynamic efficiency of turboprop wings

The airline industry is continuously evolving to manage the increased passenger traffic for short routes. Versatile and cost-effective turboprops are lately enjoying a comeback, helping airlines create more routes. The EU-funded project ESTRO is carrying out extensive wind tunnel testing to evaluate the wing aerodynamic efficiency of the recently introduced 90-seat turboprop aircraft. The focus will be on testing laminar flow and wing loading at medium/high Mach numbers (up to 0.67) and wind tunnel Reynolds numbers in the region of 10 to 11 million. Computer models will complement experimental work by validating experimental results.
