ABSTRACT Airfoil is the main part of the airplane which contributes the lift required by the airplane to fly in the air. By varying the wing’s area and the angle of attack, different lift can be created and can…show more content… NOMENCLATURE SYMBOLS | DESCRIPTION | UNITS | L | Lift | - | D | Drag | - | Re | Reynolds number | - | α | Angle of Attack | - | M | Mach number | - | Cp | Pressure Coefficient | - | Cl | Lift Coefficient | - | Cd | Drag Coefficient | - | Cl / Cd | Glide Ratio | - | T | Thickness | mm | c | Chord | - | INTRODUCTION Airfoils are the primary shapes which allow streamlined flow over it when it is driven through air. These shapes do not produce much drag compared to other shapes as so it is used in all aircraft structural parts which is subjected to airflow.
