Paper Title:
Numerical Investigation of Flow past a Wavy Airfoil
  Abstract

The effect of the wavy surface on the aerodynamic characteristics of an airfoil is studied using the large eddy simulations. A more gentle lift characteristic is obtained during stall. For angles of attack less than the baseline stall angle of a NACA0012 airfoil, a lift coefficient reduction was observed for the wavy airfoils, while the lift coefficient increases up to 23% greater than that of a NACA0012 airfoil when the angle of attack is larger than the baseline stall angle of the NACA0012 airfoil.
