Drag Analysis Methods for Light Aircraft 750526

The bases for computer programs which calculate by rigorous analytical methods the lift and drag of light aircraft are indicated along with results obtained for airfoils, complete wings, and fuselages. A method to determine the actual lift, drag, and thrust horsepower experienced during flight is discussed in detail. The latter will be used to verify the analytical predictions for an advanced technology light twin.
