It is obvious that the profile is optimized for passing through air at a certain airspeed. If the airspeed is doubled, would the profile need to be stretched horizontally in the direction of travel to prevent laminar flow separation? If the profile were applied to a taller, or lower vehicle, would it need to be stretched, or shortened to maintain attachment?
