A THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON THE PLANFORM OF SUPERVENTILATED WINGS

This study explores the influence of the aspect ratio, the taper ratio, and the sweepback on the flow over trapezoidal superventilated wings with a flat wetted lower surface. The flow is first calculated by a numerical method in the scope of the linearized supercavitating lifting-surface theory. The calculated wings are then made and tested in a water tunnel at zero cavitation number. The measured force and moment coefficients are compared with the prediction.
