Full text not available from this repository.


The paper deals with the aerodynamic design of laminar flow wings. The main concepts at present applied which are Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) based on favorable pressure gradients and Hybrid Laminar (HLF) using in addition leading edge suction are presented and discussed. The essential role of a reliable transition prediction in the design process is pointed out. Specific design features of the suction system are also addressed. In addition, some aspects of the off-design problems are raised.
