Why we tend to use cambered aerofoil? – Symmetrical (Non-cambered) v.s Non-symmetrical (Cambered)

 [Ref 080 Principles of flight]

Why we tend to use cambered aerofoil?

We may compare Symmetrical (Non-cambered) to Non-symmetrical (Cambered) aerofoil in terms of several aspects:

  1. Nose-down pitching moment in different AoA
  2. Lift coefficient (CL) max (CLmax) and Speed to achieve CLmax (CLmax speed)
  3. Lift magnitude in case same  AoA
