In view of the future application of a morphing wing technology on the horizontal tail of the Cessna Citation X, the LARCASE team had to develop an accurate aerodynamic model of the horizontal tail. To this end, a geometry of the wing was required, especially its airfoil shape, which is strictly confidential. Using a reverse engineering method, the team managed to find an airfoil that delivered a performance close to the original one.
