Airfoils, Incorporated is a consulting firm specializing in airfoil design, analysis, and testing, including high-lift systems. Consultation in general aerodynamics is also available. Over the past 25 years, founder Dan M. Somers has designed airfoils for a wide range of applications including wind turbines, fans, and aircraft using the Eppler Airfoil Design and Analysis Code. He has also conducted many wind-tunnel investigations of his airfoils... Several airfoils have been designed to test Eppler's method. By investigating the airfoils in low-turbulence wind tunnels, the range of applicability of the method has been established. Initially, the classical, low-speed Reynolds-number range of 3 to 9 million was investigated. From there, higher Reynolds numbers ( 20 million) and Mach numbers ( 0.7) were explored. More recently, lower Reynolds numbers ( 0.5 million) have been investigated. The latest indications are that the method is also applicable at even lower Reynolds numbers ( 0.1..
