Paper Title:
Influence of the Alignment of Two Airfoils in the Losses Generation
  Abstract

A numerical simulation of a flow passing throw two NACA 0012 airfoils is presented in this paper. Aerodynamics, drag forces, and pressure drop is quantified when both profiles are axially aligned and then when one of them is vertically displaced. NUMECA code and Spalart-Allmaras turbulence model were used for this purpose. The results showed that aerodynamic losses are present in both profiles, meaning that the presence of the back profile plays an important role in the aerodynamic behavior of the frontal profile.
