Unseparated Flow Near a Trailing Edge with a Flap

We start by considering a flow of finite width past a trailing edge with a flap. This scheme corresponds to the second power-augmented flow model, discussed at the beginning of this section. The flow picture and the aux­iliary plane C are shown in Fig. 8.10, where X = —x/h, Y = y/h — 1, bf = bf/h, bf sin Of < 1. In the latter relationship the equality sign cor­responds to the case, when the flap touches the ground.

Application of the method of singular points gives the results, presented below. The complex conjugate velocity in the ( plane can be derived in the form

d2 = VC+T

The derivative of the complex velocity potential with respect to the aux­iliary variable ( is obtained as

Note that in this problem the channel flow velocity near the flap is cal­culated as one of the results of the solution. In a two-dimensional problem the magnitude of <5) is assumed to be known because the flow rate and the velocity on the jet boundary are the same as those in front of the wing. Then from conditions (8.101)-(8.104), we can obtain the following system of three equations for the determination of constants a, 6, and c:

Knowing a, 6, and c, we can determine the remaining unknowns using the formulas
