## Elliptical Lift Distribution of Finite Wing

An elliptic lift distribution causes the downwash across the span to be a constant. As a result the induced drag is a minimum when compared to a planar wing of equal span,…

An elliptic lift distribution causes the downwash across the span to be a constant. As a result the induced drag is a minimum when compared to a planar wing of equal span,…

The moment coefficient pertains to the moment specifically due to the aerodynamics force (lift force on the wing mostly). The moment of a force can be calculated about any arbitrary point on the chord …

It is a dimensionless coefficient that relates the lift generated by a lifting body to the fluid density around the body, the fluid velocity and an associated reference area …

The 'strength' of a vortex tube (also called vortex flux) is the integral of the vorticity across a cross-section of the tube and is the same everywhere along the tube …

Shaft horsepower is determined by the rpm and the torque (twisting moment) applied to the propeller shaft. Since turboprop engines are gas turbine engines, some jet thrust is produced by…
