Cambered valve leaflets that maximize initial rate of closure

  • E. O. Tuck (a1), A. Helfgott (a2) and R. W. Yeung (a3)

Camber distributions are chosen for airfoils of zero thickness that maximize the angular velocity induced by a sudden decrease in free-stream velocity. Those optimal shapes that are in equilibrium in steady forward flow are also neutrally stable in that position.
