Analytical Methods of Evaluating Aerodynamic Forces of Aircraft Wings 2009-01-3281

This paper presented methods to determine the aerodynamic forces that act on an aircraft wing during flight. These methods are initially proposed for a simplified two degree-of-freedoms airfoil model and then are extensively applied for a multi-degree-of-freedom airfoil system. Different airspeed conditions are considered in establishing such methods. The accuracy of the presented methods is verified by comparing the estimated aerodynamic forces with the actual values. A good agreement is achieved through the comparisons and it is verified that the present methods can be used to correctly identify the aerodynamic forces acting on the aircraft wing models.
