Single Horseshoe Vortex Wing Model 16.100 2002 2 Induced Drag To estimate the induced drag using this simple model, we will assume that the 3-D lift is tilted by the downwash occurring at the wing root ( 0 = y ). i i eff i eff i eff i eff i eff L L L D L L L α = = = = sin cos For small i & V w i i To calculate downwash , we apply Biot-Savart: × Γ = filament r r d z y x w 3 4 ) , , ( v l v v π L eff L i i D V i w i eff x b y x Γ Γ Γ r v +∞ x +∞ x ) 0 , 2 , ( b x l d i D L V L
