Abstract:

A fundamental theory of wing-slipstream interaction accounts for slipstreams of arbitrary cross-section by means of vortex sheaths. These sheaths together with the wing circulation pattern are dictated by the boundary conditions the analysis leads to simultaneous integral equations for their determination. In a multiple lifting line approximation these are ultimately reduced to simultaneous linear algebraic equations for machine inversion. Programs for digital computer have been developed for the case of round slipstreams distributed with lateral symmetry on a rectangular wing. Author
