    Default The one show

    Did anyone see the one show tonight?

    I didn't catch much of it but saw a couple of minutes where some guy is studying owl flight as apparently they have silent flight. One thing he has discovered is that owl's have a frilly edge to the rear edge of their wing. He has done some wind tunnel tests with model aircraft wings and found that by having a frilly edge on the rear of the wing is quieter compared to the hard straight edge usually found on aircraft wings.

    I wonder by adding a frilly edge to stators on craft if that may help reduce noise. Also a frilly edge could be fitted to the rear edge of air deflectors if fitted guiding air into the plenum.

    Food for thought

    You should PM Keith Oakley.

    He may have experimented with this already.
