Sample text

In case (F) the value of Re is larger than that of any other case, and it has the largest aerodynamicscale of the six. 2 An aeroplane approaches to land at a speed of 40 m s-l at sea level. A 1/5th scale model is tested under dynamically similar conditions in a Compressed Air Tunnel (CAT) working at 10 atmospheres pressure and 15°C. It is found that the load on the tailplane is subject to impulsive fluctuations at a frequency of 20 cycles per second, owing to eddies being shed from the wing-fuselage junction.

Half a cycle later the picture would be reversed, with the upper filaments curving back as do the lower filaments in this sketch. (b) Flat plate at fairly high incidence. (c) Circular cylinder at low Re. For pattern at higher Re, see Fig. 14. (d) Aerofoil section at moderate incidence and low Re The wake Behind any body moving in air is a wake, just as there is a wake behind a ship. Although the wake in air is not normally visible it may be felt, as when, for example, a bus passes by. The total drag of a body appears as a loss of momentum and increase of energy in this wake.

It is emphasized again that both form and skin-friction drag depend on viscosity for their existence and cannot exist in an inviscid flow. Profile drag for boundary-layer drag) The profile drag is the sum of the skin-friction and form drags. See also the formal definition given at the beginning of the previous item. Comparison of drags for various types of body Normalflat plate (Fig. 14) In the case of a flat plate set broadside to a uniform flow, the drag is entirely form drag, coming mostly from the large negative pressure coefficients over the rear face.
