Abstract—Current projections for future aircraft concepts call for stringent requirements on high-lift and low cruise-drag. The purpose of this study is to examine the use of circulation control, through trailing edge blowing, to meet both requirements. This study is performed to validate of computational fluid dynamic procedures on a general aviation circulation control airfoil. In an effort to validate computational fluid dynamics procedures for calculating flows around circulation control airfoils, the commercial flow solver FLUENT was utilized to study the flow around a general aviation circulation control airfoil. The results were compared to experimental and computational fluid dynamics results conducted at the NASA Langley Research Center. This effort was performed and compared of the results for free-air conditions to those from previously conducted experiments.
