Vortices and wings

What the third dimension does Difference between upper and lower pressure results in

circulatory motion about the wingtips

Vortices develop

Causing downwash

Drag is increased by this induced downwash

Origin of induced drag

Wingtip vortices alter flow field Resulting pressure distribution increases drag Rotational kinetic energy is added to the 2-D flow Lift vector is tilted back

AOA is effectively reduced Component of force in drag direction is generated

Induced drag

The sketch shows For small angles of attack The value of i for a given section of a finite wing depends on the

distribution of downwash along the span of the wing

Lift per unit span varies Chord may vary in length along the wing span Twist may be added so that each airfoil section is

at a different geometric angle of attack The shape of the airfoil section may change along

the wing span Lift per unit span as a function of distancealong the span -- also called the lift distribution

The downwash distribution, w, which results from the lift distribution

Lift per unit span

An elliptical lift distribution

Produces a uniform downwash distribution For a uniform downwash distribution, incompressible theory

predicts that

Subsonically,The purpose of swept wings is to

delay the drag rise associated with wave drag

For a straight wing

Now, sweep theWing by 30

Swept and Delta wings

Supersonically,The goal is to keep wing surfaces inside the mach

cone to reduce wave drag

High lift devices

The lift equation

Solving for gives the true airspeed in unaccelerated level flight for a particular CL

In level unaccelerated flight stall speed occurs when maximum CL occurs

Flaps are not the only high lift device
