Wing design for a sports glider 
  • The justification of the aerofoil selection with appropriate data, based on tunnel work or computational analysis. 
  • Sizing of the wing in terms of total area, aspect ratio and span. This should include a detailed engineering drawing of the planform, with all dimensions shown. 
  • Analysis of the wing loading using only the tools available for the course and comparison of the obtained result with the ideal lift distribution. 
  • References used for the work including references to data and software. 
  • You should provide all data used for your design as well as sample outputs from codes. 
  • Hint: Try to use all tools available on the VITAL and compare results between codes, theory and experiments. Use spreadsheets to calculate the performance (glide slope, sink rate etc). 
  • Develop your own lifting line method as outlined in the class and compare against existing data and the methods available on VITAL. 
  • Investigate the wake configuration using the method outlined in class
