Abstract

We consider the dynamics of a typical airfoil section both in forced and free oscillations and investigate the importance of the added mass terms, i.e. the second derivatives in time of the pitch angle and plunge displacement. The structural behaviour is modelled by linear springs in pitch and plunge and the aerodynamic loading represented by our interpretation of the state-space version of the Leishman–Beddoes semi-empirical model. The added mass terms are often neglected since this leads to an explicit system of ODEs amenable for solution using standard ODEsolvers. We analyse the effect of neglecting the added mass terms in forced oscillations about a set of mean angles of incidence by comparing the solutions obtained with the explicit and implicit systems of ODEs and conclude that their differences amount to a time lag that increases at a constant rate with increases of the reduced frequency.
