This paper details experimental results from wind tunnel studies of a DHMTU 12-35.3-10.2- 80.12 and NACA 0012 section operating in ground effect. It was found that the drag of the DHMTU 12-35.3-10.2-80.12 increased with decreasing altitude, contrary to expectations and superior lift performance to the NACA 0012 baseline section was generated. The DHMTU possesses superior L/D at low angles of attack when in ground effect. These experimental studies have illustrated the unique aerodynamic characteristics of the DHMTU 12-35.3-10.2-80.12 and indicated areas for further optimisation of the design of ground effect airfoils.
