>NLF215F considerations, Cl for different conditions

>My earlier post about the NLF215F simulations with XFLR5, the related parameters for aircraft would be in the use case (one iteration of thinking):

– low altitude cruise:
* altitude = 12000 ft
* W/S = 22 lbs/sqft
* Clcruise = 0.41
* NLF215F flap in the -10 degrees position, gap seals closed

– high altitude cruise:
* altitude = 36000 ft
* W/S = 22 lbs/sqft
* Clcruise = 0.96
* NLF215F flap in the 0 degree position, gap seals closed

– extreme high altitude cruise
* some fuel burned already -> W/S reduced to 21 lbs/sqft
* altitude = 46000 ft
* W/S = 21 lbs/sqft
* Clcruise = 1.48
* NLF215F flap in the 0 degrees position, gap seals closed

– approach
* 1 slot open
* W/S = 15 lbs/sqft
* altitude = 1000 ft
* Cl = 1.1, V = 75 kts (at gross weight, W/S 22 lbs/sqft)
* Cl = 1.1, V = 65 kts (when fuel tanks nearly empty, W/S 15 lbs/sqft)
* NLF215F flap in the +10 degrees position, 1 slot open

– landing
* 2 slots open
