Aero/Thermal/Fluids Engineering Summer Internship Interview Derby, England (UK)

Explain how an aerofoil generates lift in non-engineering


Interview Answer

1 Answer


This was harder than it seems. Words such as 'streamlines' and 'circulation' are technical and will be picked up on. Consider shape of FLOWlines around aerofoil. Use cambered as first example and follow on with how symmetrical aerofoils generate lift at non-zero angles of incidence.
