Umrenat Airplane Aerodynamics and Performance Dr. Such devices are and have been used over part of the outboard span of a wing 1 max to delay tip stall. NACA 4 camber: Vj IAS is the indicated airspeed corrected for instrument error.

Airplane Aerodynamics and Performance

The specific weight of water is therefore: As seen from Figures 5. The increment to maximum lift due to camber is least for sections with relatively large leading edge radii i.

This approach is illustrated in Figure 4. Windtunnel data must be corrected for differences between the flow -field in the tunnel and the flow’-ficld in flight. It is seen that because of the forward orientation of this winglet lift an effective thrust force is produced.

Volume max for equivalent body of revolution 5. Compressible cp or c. This quantity L tl;ip may be estimated with the methods of References 5. How flow separation progresses in a chordwisc and spanwise manner depends on the following items: The drag poiars of such airplanes therefore include a schedule of surface deflections.


This was also defined in Chapter rooskam for an airfoil. In this manner a meaningful comparison of airplane and engine performance based on in-flight measurements can always be arrived at. On the other hand, the turbulent boundary layer skin friction drag has been found to decrease with Mach number in subsonic flow, in accordance with Ref.

The thickness is the height of the airfoil measured normal to the chord line. The force coefficients c z and c x now follow from: While the boundary layer on a large airplane is usually fully turbulent, large regions of laminar flow aerodynammics exist on the model. The w r ing is equipped with a partial span flap as shown in Figure 4.

Because of the great importance of the effects of the turbulence factor and Reynolds number on skin friction drag, the following example problem is presented. For the fuselage Reynolds number use: The fuselage can significantly influence the wing drag due to lift.

Conservation of mass along a streamtube, such as a windtunnel. That effect agrees with Eqn 4. The aerodynamic characteristics of slotted flaps are very sensitive to the details of the slot entry and lip design. The reason is, that once a section is stalled, the resulting flow separation will spread quickly to neighboring sections as the angle of attack is increased.

During takeoff, the angle of attack is set at 8 degrees.

When a fuselage is integrated with a wing and with nacelles and the empennageextra drag, called: According to the Kutta-Joukowski Theorem, the generation of lift on a wing can be explained by the existence of circulation in a uniform flow, and vice versa.


The high lift is airplame derived from the increase in camber which is characteristic for a slotted flap arrangement. To obtain airspeed from an imperfect airspeed instrument operating under non-standard conditions requires that the corresponding errors be accounted for.

It has been shown that in such a case the induced drag coefficient is a minimum. This result should be used only for high aspect ratio wings.

A typical exception is the Lake -4 amphibious airplane. If is the fuselage length as defined in Figure 5. For an arbitrary number of stores this may be determined from: In some instances a canard is used instead of, or in addition to a horizontal tail.

These definitions arc most easily applied when the drag rise behavior of airplanes is represented in a cross plot of drag coefficient, at constant lift coefficient, versus Mach number. This sharp drag rise is also shown in Figure 4.

Tare corrections arc discussed in detail in Ref. The airplane data required to perform these predictions are given in Table 2.
