3-8 Contributing factors to overall drag. Nomenclature: (1) subsonic transport; (2) SST; (3) business jet; (4) fighter aircraft (subsonic); (5) fighter aircraft (supersonic); (6) helicopter; V ¼ viscous/parasite; L ¼ lift-induced; I ¼ interference drag; W ¼ wave drag; O ¼ other causes. 88 (Oswald factor), which depends on the spanwise load distribution. For an ideally elliptically loaded wing e ¼ 1. 14 is useful for checking the validity of the coefficient k in the drag equation. The CL and CD can be plotted against each other in a single graph, to yield the drag polar, for a given aircraft speed or Mach number.

0001), and sensibly higher for smaller airplanes. By comparison, the Douglas DC-3 of the 1930s had 249 drag counts of skin friction drag – a very respectable value, which demonstrates that progress in this area has been relatively slow. 3-12. The dotted line shows a trend toward the minimum theoretical value of a turbulent flat plate. 6 Glide Ratio This parameter is the ratio between lift and drag; sometimes it is called glide factor or aerodynamic efficiency. The best glide ratios of current aircraft do not exceed 20, although they are contained within the 14 to 18 range.

Obviously, this is an idealized case that does not occur in practice. g. cooler air at the ground level and warmer air at low altitudes, contrary to the standard model. A comprehensive introduction to weather processes and climatic conditions around the world has been provided by Barry and Chorley. A detailed performance analysis requires consideration of large deviations from the standard values, to deal with extreme environmental conditions: winters in the northern hemisphere, very hot weather on the ground.
