Pagination or Media Count:
Nondimensional equations are developed from slenderairfoil theory to determine the geometry and pressure characteristics of a mean line camber that will enable a thin lifting surface to develop an arbitrary, assigned, polygonally shaped lift distribution in two-dimensional inviscid flow. These equations are verified as being adequate for making design decisions. Author
