Supercritical Airfoil Coordinates

Metadata Updated: July 17, 2020

Rectangular Supercritical Wing (Ricketts) - design and measured locations are provided in an Excel file RSW_airfoil_coordinates_ricketts.xls . One sheet is with Non dimensional coordinates (RSW-nd) to be able to compare with other supercritical airfoils. The other sheet (RectSupercriticalWing) has the data which should be used to generate the grids.

Benchmark Supercritical Wing are available in PDF file of tables. The data was OCR'd. Matlab code was written to read data line by line to be able to extract the data. The "*" flag associated with points that have deviation greater the specified value were replaced with blank space. Bad lines were omitted - lines that have non-numerical digits.

Comparison of Rectangular Supercritical Wing (Ricketts), Benchmark Supercritical Wing, MBB_A3

2D Airfoil tested at DLR - comparison of theoretical and actual.
