Airfoils

Airfoil can be definead as a shape of wing, as seen in cross-section. In order
to describe an airfoil, we must define the following terms.

  • The mean camber line is a line drawn midway between the upper and
    lower surfaces.
  • The leading and trailing edge are the most forward an rearward of the
    mean camber line.
  • The chord line is a line connecing leading an trailing edge.
  • The chord length is the distance from the leading to the trailing edge, measured along the chord line.
  • The camber is the maximum distance between mean camber line and chord line.
  • The thickness is the distance between the upper and lower surfaces.
