Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to design an efficient airfoil for a wind turbine blade. To be entirely honest, I'm not entirely familiar with this field of engineering; I mainly specialize with steam applications, so this design attempt is obviously a somewhat far cry from that! Yet I've been trying to get myself as acquainted as possible with the design of airfoils, and now I'm here for help.

What I'm looking for is a way to plug in various formulas, such as the lift and drag coefficients, so that I can determine the best ratio(s) of the chambers and chord length; or just the best ratio of dimensions (if possible!).

All the best,

-BB
