Update the available literature on current flat back airfoils.Continue the optimization of flatback surfaces obtained from conventional sections and develop completely new designs with the objective of obtaining better aerodynamic characteristics than conventional airfoils.
The target of this project is to continue the work started in a previous project, studying and optimizing the aerodynamics of flat back airfoils, which are used for wind turbine applications, through numerical simulations.
