The Coanda Conundrum
Division:Health Sciences / Automotive
City:Maryhill, ON
School:St. John's-Kilmarnock School
Abstract:My project tested the amount of lift produced using the Coanda Effect. Using variable airspeeds from a leaf blower, I could determine the amount of lift produced by different curved foils. I found that the tighter the radius of curvature the more lift produced.
