Compressible cp or c. Also, the spanwise distribution of the section zero- lift angle of attack is changed by the deflected flap. The term is nearly always negative. In this case, Eqn 2. Even in subsonic flow, the effect of viscosity on the boundary layer and therefore on friction drag must be included. The interference drag of tail surfaces tends to be smaller for tails installed at the rear end of a fuselage than for tails installed further forward.

AC l Ac lf K b where: The definition of Mach number is as follows: The text is aimed at junior and senior level aeronautical engineering students.

In addition, an aft swept wing will tend to have tip stall because of the tendency toward outboard, spanwise flow, causing the boundary layer to thicken as it approaches the tips. The fuselage can significantly influence the wing drag due to lift.

From an engineering accuracy viewpoint it is usually acceptable to define the camber line with measurements perpendicular to the chord line. For the wing Reynolds number use: Detailed discussions of other corrections are beyond the scope of this text.

This factor can he enhanced by features such as tip-tanks, w’inglets and proper wing-fuselage blending i. Such procedures are then based upon their experience obtained in comparing model and airplane data.

This is partly due to the difference in the propulsion system: It can be conjectured from these examples that the static port locations will normally not provide for ambient i. The basic form of Eqn 4. If the density altitude is 8, ft, find the true temperature at that altitude. How flow separation progresses in a chordwisc and spanwise manner depends on the following items: By using the software of Reference 5.

The actual density therefore is: It is shown, that the section or airfoil characteristics discussed in Chapter 3, form an essential ingredient in the prediction of lifting surface characteristics. The wing area is sq. However, eventually, the maximum lift coefficient will decrease with increasing Mach number.

Assume standard atmospheric conditions. This question is tricky to answer because of the effects of wing root bending and torsion, flutter, trade between induced drag and friction drag and weight.

Airplane Aerodynamics and Performance

Note that wings of varying aspect ratio tend to have approximately the same angle of attack for zero lift. Col l ections to the wetted area may have to be made to prevent accounting twice for the intersections of such items as wing on fuselage. Because of the increase in lift curve slope, the lift-versus- angle-of-attack curves of airfoils at different subsonic Mach numbers are as shown in Figure 3. The circulation is then given by: Chapter 3 57 Airfoil Theory Table 3.

Qerodynamics is calculated from: It is known that the critical Reynolds number of a sphere tested in free air is aboutChapter 4 95 Wing Theory It is seen from Figure 4. If is the fuselage length as defined in Figure 5. Some test results on a NACA 64 1 airfoil with leading edge flaps and trailing edge split flaps are presented in Figure 3.


This is true within certain constraints involving mission requirements and cost considerations. If the trip strip is located too far forward, the boundary layer will be unrealistically thick at the shock.

It is shown in Figure 3. It should be noted, that in some airplanes the gear drag increment can be a function of the flap deflection. In fact, this phenomenon is often used to perforkance the location of the transition region. Many single engine, light airplanes use plain flaps. C D is the two-dimensional profile drag increment due to the flap s.

Flight speeds in the range of roughly: C f is the turbulent flat plate skin-friction coefficient of the fuselage, The general, turbulent, flat plate friction coefficient, C f is shown in Figure airplae. Typical of such additional drag items are: A, is also of major importance.

The base drag of the fuselage is Chapter 5 Airplane Drag discussed in Sub-sub-section 5. Work done by Van Dam et al Ref. In the Cessna this results in the pilot having to push on the control wheel when the flaps are lowered! The magnitude of the pitching moment coefficient, c m depends on the location of the asrodynamics reference center. Windtunnel data must be corrected for the weight of the model.
