1 10TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON PARTICLE IMAGE VELOCIMETRY PIV13 Delft, The Netherlands, July 13, 2013 Aerodynamic characteristics around the stalling angle of the discus using a PIV Kazuya Seo 1 1 Department of Education, Art and Science, Yamagata University, Yamagata, Japan ABSTRACT This paper describes the hysteresis in the aerodynamic properties of a discus near to its stalling angle. Wind tunnel tests were carried out with a fullsize woman s discus. The experimental aerodynamic data D, L and M were obtained from wind tunnel tests as functions of the angle of attack. It was found that the drag, lift and pitching moment coefficients, C D and C M, increase with increasing the angle of attack up to a stalling angle of Beyond the stalling angle, and C M decrease suddenly and abruptly with increasing angle of attack. On the other hand, recovery from the stall does not occur at the same stalling angle of when the angle of attack decreases from the stall state; recovery actually occurs at 25. The dependence of and C M on the angle of attack is almost the same when the angle of attack is less than 24. Therefore, hysteresis occurs near the stalling angle. A laminar bubble region is observed in the upstream side of the discus at 28 during the process of increasing the angle of attack, and reattachment occurs around the convex point of the discus. However, reattachment does not occur at 26 during the process of decreasing the angle of attack. INTRODUCTION Discus throwing is a sport in which the thrower attempts to gain the longest flight distance. To determine the flight path of a discus [1] when it is thrown, it is essential to know what aerodynamic forces are acting on it. We have measured the aerodynamic forces acting on a women s discus [2]. It was found that the lift coefficient decreases suddenly and abruptly at the stalling angle. Therefore, we repeated the force measurements with fine intervals in terms of angle of attack in order to elucidate the features of stalling in detail. As a result, it was found that hysteresis occurs around the stalling angle. In this paper, the dependence of the aerodynamic coefficients on the angle of attack and the results of PIV measurements around the stalling angle will be shown. METHOD A fullsize discus was employed to determine the aerodynamic forces acting on it in a lowspeed wind tunnel with a 0.7 m 0.7 m rectangular nozzle. We used a commercially available discus (Super HM, Nishi athletics goods). Definitions of the characteristic parameters are shown in Figure 1. The wind speed, U, was set to 15, 20, 25 and 30 ms 1. Since the aerodynamic coefficients are independent of the spin rate on its axis of symmetry [2], it was set at ω=0 (nonspin) revolutions per second. The angle of attack, AoA, which is the angle between the discus planform and the direction of the flight path, was also varied, from 0 to 90. The measurement interval for AoA was 1 around the stalling angle and 5 for the remainder of the range. Data were acquired over a period of 8 sec. using a threecomponent struttype balance (LMC NS; Nissho Electric Works Co., Ltd.) and were recorded on a personal computer using an A/D converter board with a sampling rate of 1000 Hz. Definitions of the aerodynamic forces are also shown in Figure 1. The drag and the lift are denoted by D and L, respectively, and the pitching moment is denoted by M. The noseup rotation is defined as positive. The aerodynamic forces are converted into the drag coefficient C D, the lift coefficient and the pitching moment coefficient C M, as follows: L 0.5 U 2 D 0.5 U C D 2 A A (1) (2)
2 M 0.5 U C M 2 Ad (3) where is the density of air, A (= d 2 /4) is the cross sectional area of the discus planform and d is the diameter of the discus planform. The measuring points denoted by P 1, P 2 and P 3 for the pressure are shown in Figure 2. The measuring points are on the pressure side when AoA is positive, and they are on the suction side when AoA is negative. Figure 1 parameters. Definitions of the characteristic Figure 2 Measuring points for the pressure. The 2DPIV measurements were carried out on the centerline of the discus. Microdroplet particles with diameters of 1μm were generated by an aerosol generator (PivPart40, PivTec), and were introduced into the flow from the sirocco fan in the wind tunnel. A high repetitionrate pulsed ND:Yag laser (LDP100MQG, Lee Laser) illuminated the microdroplet particles. A highspeed camera (Memrecam GX8, Nac) was used to record tiff images at a sampling frequency of 1000Hz. The wind speed was set at 20ms 1. Figure 3(a) shows a picture taken before the run, while Figure 3(b) shows a picture taken during the run. (a) Before the run; Figure 3 (b) During the run Experimental setup of PIV measurement. RESULTS and DISCUSSIONS The lift coefficient,, is shown in Figure 4 as a function of the angle of attack, AoA. The wind speed, U, is taken as a parameter. The closed triangles denote the data which is acquired in the process of increasing AoA from 0 to 35, while the open circles denote the data which is acquired in the process of decreasing AoA from 35 to 0. It can be seen that increases almost linearly with increasing AoA below 25. In the process of increasing from 0 to 35, decreases suddenly and abruptly at 30 (29 for U=15m/s). This decrease is caused by the effects of stalling. Though the stall might be a noise induced stall, which is very sensitive to small amounts of noise such as that caused by surface roughness or disturbance due to the introduced wind, the stalling angle is almost the same for all wind speeds. In the process of decreasing from 35 to 0, recovery from stalling occurs at 25 (24 for U=15m/s). Therefore, hysteresis occurs near the stalling angle.
3 The dependence on AoA of the pressure coefficient, C P, is shown in Figure 5. The pressure coefficient, C P, is defined as the pressure divided by the dynamic pressure. The measuring points for the pressure are shown in Figure 2. The measurements were carried out following a procedure from 0 to 90, from 90 to 0, from 0 to 60 and from 60 to 0. It can be seen that C P increases with increasing AoA in the range from 0 to 55 for P 1, from 0 to 65 for P 2 and from 0 to 80 for P 3. This is because there is an inflow directly into the measuring point. When AoA decreases from 90 to 0, C P follows the same path with increasing AoA. On the other side, C P1 decreases with decreasing AoA in the range from 0 to 28. It changes suddenly with decreasing AoA from 15 to 20. On the way back from 60 to 0, C P1 recovers from the stall at 25. Therefore, hysteresis occurs on the suction side. It can be seen that C P2 also decreases with decreasing AoA in the range from 0 to 30. Since C P2 also changes suddenly with decreasing AoA from 27 to 28, the value of C P2 is approaching that of C P1. This implies that the region of the laminar separation bubble extends from the measuring point P 1 to P 2, because C P is almost constant in the laminar separation bubble region [3].

Figure 5 C P CP1 CP2 CP The dependence on angle of attack of the pressure coefficient at U=20m/s. The aerodynamic coefficients, C D and C M at U=20m/s are shown as a function of the angle of attack in Figure 6. Error bars that indicate the standard deviations for velocity are also shown. The closed triangles denote the data which is acquired in the process of increasing AoA from 0 to 35, while the open circles denote the data which is acquired in the process of decreasing AoA from 35 to 0. Since the difference in path is negligibly small above 35, the averaged values acquired by the back support are denoted by the open squares. It was found that hysteresis occurs for and C M near the stalling angle. The error bars near the stalling angle become longer. Since the induced drag coefficient is proportional to the square of [4], C D also decreases just beyond the stalling angle in both processes.

The angle of attack increases from Figure7 (a) to (c) in the process of increasing AoA. The angle of attack decreases from Figure7 (d) to (f) in the process of decreasing AoA. The flow direction is from the left to the right. The discus is located around the bottom in each picture. It can be seen that the flow almost runs along the surface of the discus at 15 (Figure 7 (a)) and 28 (Figure 7 (b)) in the process of increasing AoA, while boundary separation occurs at 35 (Figure 7 (c)). At 28 in the process of increasing AoA (Figure 7 (b)), a low velocity region can be seen around the downstream side of the leading edge. This region might correspond with the laminar separation bubble region. The velocity outside this low velocity region becomes higher. Reattachment occurs around the convex point of the discus (There are two circles on either side of the discus. The edge of these circles is the convex point.). Since the regulations for discuses allow the diameters of these circles to be changed in the range between 50 and 57mm, there is a possibility of changing the position of reattachment. Since the transition from the laminar flow to turbulent flow occurs far away from the discus surface at 35, it may happen that the turbulent flow wedge cannot reach the surface again. Thus, there is no reattachment. At 28 (Figure 7 (d)) and 26 (Figure 7 (e)) in the process of decreasing AoA, boundary separation also occurs as it does at 35. Even if the angle of attack in Figure 7 (d) is same value of 28 as Figure 7 (b), the velocity vectors are completely different. At 25 (Figure 7 (f)) in the process of decreasing AoA, recovery from the stall occurs. SUMMARY 1. Hysteresis occurs around the stalling angle for both the lift and the pitching coefficients. 2. Stalling occurs at 30 in the process of increasing the angle of attack, while recovery occurs at 25 in the decreasing process. 3. The flow runs almost along the surface of the discus up to 28 in the process of increasing the angle of attack. 4. A laminar bubble region is observed in the upstream side of the discus at 28 in the process of increasing the angle of attack. 5. Reattachment occurs around the convex point at 28 in the process of increasing the angle of attack.
