Detailed Description

Base class for profile models for handling aerofoil lift and drag polar diagrams.

Minimal example by using constant/fvOptions: rotorDiskSource1 { Mandatory/Optional (inherited) entries ...

Mandatory entries (runtime modifiable) profiles { Mandatory entries (runtime modifiable) <profile1> { type <profileModel>;

Mandatory/Optional (inherited) entries ... } ... <profileN> { ... }

Optional entries (runtime modifiable) file <fileName>; } }

where the entries mean:

Property Description Type Reqd Dflt
type Profile model - see below word yes -
file Name of file containing profile characteristics word no -

Options for the type entry:

      lookup    | Polar data is linearly interpolated based on angle of attack
      series    | Polar data is computed as sum of cosine series
