An airfoil, a flap mechanism and an associated method are provided to controllably actuate a flap positioned proximate the trailing edge of an airfoil body. The flap mechanism includes a carrier beam hingedly connected to an airfoil body and also pivotally connected to a flap proximate the trailing edge of the airfoil body. The flap mechanism further includes an actuator, a first plurality of links and a second plurality of links. The first plurality of links is operably connected to the airfoil body, the actuator and the carrier beam. The first pluralit...
1. An airfoil comprising: an airfoil body defining an internal cavity;a flap proximate a trailing edge of the airfoil body; anda flap mechanism configured to controllably position the flap relative to the airfoil body, wherein the flap mechanism comprises: a carrier beam hingedly connected to the airfoil body at a hinge point such that the carrier beam is configured to rotate about the hinge point relative to the airfoil body without aftward movement during a transition between an undeployed position and a deployed position, the carrier beam also pivotal...
