Abstract:

This Guide which has also been published, for limited circulation, as UK National Gas Turbine Establishment Report 78004 presents the results of detailed investigations into the problems of measuring thrust in flight for the assessment of aircraft performance and the determination of aircraft drag. These investigations were conducted by a United Kingdom MOD Study Group, known as MIDAP Ministry-Industry Drag Analysis Panel. Several significant changes to the text have been made since an earlier version of the same Guide was published though not in the AGARDograph series. It is intended that the Guide shall serve both as a comprehensive introduction to the subject and also as a reference document for use during all phases of a specific test programme. This AGARDograph has been sponsored by the Flight Mechanics Panel of AGARD and is published by them on behalf of the Study Group of MIDAP Ministry-Industry Drag Analysis Panel in the United Kingdom.
