Abstract:

A technique is proposed for the numerical calculation of the aerodynamic load distribution under uniform motion of a wing with an angle of sweepback and an angle of heel, and with a fuselage in the form of an infinite circular cylinder and a zero angle of attack over a solid screen. The wing is modeled by a system of discrete oblique horseshoe shaped vortices. A scheme with 18 vortices was selected. The calculations showed how the fuselage has a considerable effect on the distribution of aerodynamic load along the wing, the effect being especially great in the motion of the system close to a solid screen.
