The startup wishes to have a better understanding of Magnus effect aerodynamics, through determination of the 6 primary aerodynamic coefficients, under steady airflow conditions at yaw angles from 0° to 90° for Reynolds numbers from 10⁵ to 10⁷ and for spin ratios from 0 to 6.
The study should also identify future simulations and identify tests which would be needed to validate the numerical analysis. And the study should highlight risk areas where the aerodynamics need to be studied in order to understand and avoid instabilities and perturbations.
The startup specifically requests an investigation of flow dynamics around twin coaxial cylinders with the stated parameters at two yaw angles. Future investigations will include further variation in disc-to-cylinder ratio, Reynolds number, yaw angle, spin ratio, aspect ratio, and differential angular velocities between left and right cylinders.
