Two of the Poli-Wind low noise Wind Turbine blade geometries SP4621HP, SP4721LA and SP4721BS are now available online at the Airfoil Tools repository as well as in the UIUC page. Go check them out in the following links: http://airfoiltools.com/airfoil/details?airfoil=sp4721la-po http://airfoiltools.com/airfoil/details?airfoil=sp4621hp-po https://m-selig.ae.illinois.edu/ads/coord_updates/SP4721LA.dat https://m-selig.ae.illinois.edu/ads/coord_updates/SP4721BS.dat
Our new manuscript “A rapid distortion theory-based airfoil turbulent inflow noise prediction method” was accepted and published in the 2020 issue of the Journal of the Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering. For further details and other papers, see the Scientific Production section.
Access the downloads area in the principal menu of Poli-Wind website, and you will find two novel airfoil geometries with their respective coordinates in the XFOIL/XFLR5 format. You will also find an Excel worksheet with performance comparison with other known airfoil family, and a link to the up-to-date QBlade application.
A new Poli-Wind website is now available! Do not forget to follow us for constant update on Wind Turbine aerodynamics and aeroacoustics research.
In the past couple of days, the Poli Wind team flew overseas to attend to the 8th International Conference on Wind Turbine Noise, in the Altis Grand Hotel, Lisbon. In the photo, from left to right, Sara Rodriguez, Dr. Marcos Pimenta, Dr. Joseph Saab and Alexandre Martuscelli Faria.
