Appendix A contains standard atmospheric characteristics in English and Metric units. Despite this small effect of water vapor on air density, water vapor does have a significant effect on engine performance and on supersonic aerodynamics.

The fundamentals of airplane flight mechanics i. Rn k — the roughness height, K, the velocity at the top of the roughness, U K at the top of the roughness, v K see Ref. Because a wing is nearly always attached to a fuselage, additional drag due to interference between these components will result. From the manometer reading, the pressure difference between Stations 1 and 2 can be determined as: S wetf is the wetted area of the fuselage.

It was seen in Chapter 4, that the induced drag of a wing with elliptical planform and moderate to high aspect ratio, is theoretically the minimum possible.

In most single engine light airplanes, there is no pylon.

Tn preliminary design it is acceptable to use: In such a case, Eqn 2,36 can be interpreted as the conservation of energy across the shock waves Ref. Determine the flap angle required to generate a total lift coefficient of 1.


However, these can be found in Reference 5. The flap-span factors K b and Kc may be found from Figures 4. Blowing is done to re-energize the boundary flow to delay separation, while suction is equivalent to eliminating the low-energy shear laver.

The reader should carefully note, that the flap-span factor, K bas defined in Figure 4. The air may therefore be regarded as a gas which satisfies the perfect gas law: This increase normally outweighs any decrease in friction drag.

An example is the method of Ref. Standard Atmosphere as well. As part of airplane performance the following topics are covered: On airplanes like the Cessna the change in down- wash over the tail, as a result of flap deployment, produces a nose up pitching moment which more than negates the nose down moment produced by the flaps. Whether or not this effect increases or decreases trim drag depends on whether the thrust line is located above or below the c. Also, show a dimensioned drawing of the planform with the location of the m.

Observe that, for all practical purposes, the data have collapsed onto one curve. During takeoff, the angle of attack is set at 8 degrees.

Chapter 2 21 Basic Aerodynamic Principles and Applications The true airspeed, V, at any altitude can be expressed as a function of V e as follows: It follows, that the location of the c. J3 is defined in Eqn 4. As part of airplane aerodynamics the following topics are covered: Fuselage induced drag, at normal flight angles airplanee attack, tends to be very small.

A vor tex produces a flow field of circular streamlines with induced velocity magnitude given by: Such a trip-strip consists of a narrow band of distributed roughness of known grit size. A more accurate calculation of the density altitude can be done as follows. Typical incremental values for section maximum lift coefficients which can be attained with siotted flaps are shown in Figure 3. Taking moments about the aerodynamic center it follows that: In general, S is defined as the area of the wing planform, projected onto a rosam of reference which is usually the wing root chord plane.


A, S, b and c without a subscript indicates a wing property! Frequently, fuselage base area is caused by the exhaust of a jet engine or an A. Aerodynamica slats may either be fixed or retractable. Finally, from Eqn 4. Second, the equivalent skin friction coefficient, C f depends on the type and accuracy of the manufacturing technology smoothness used. That region of the flow will be referred to as the boundary layer.

V is the true airspeed V a is the speed of sound A discussion of the speed of sound awrodynamics given in Sub-section 2. However, in a compressible flow, the stagnation pressure is increased due to compressibility.

Chapter 3 85 Airfoil Theory 3. F it is possible to integrate Eqn 1.

In transonic flow, the interaction of vortex flow with shock waves can create a very complex flow field. Perfkrmance, several applications of these principles will he outlined.
