Lecture F9 Mud: General Wings 1. Does elliptic loading correspond to head-on or rear views? (1 student) This doesn’t matter. Both views will see the same loading, except flipped left/right. 2. Why would you want an assymetric loading like in the 1st figure? (1 student) You wouldn’t normally design for that kind of loading. I drew it “crazy” looking to indicate that any �( y ) shape can be represented with the Fourier series. 3. Where’s Maple? (1 student) On MIT Server See MIT Server info stuff on the web. Maple does take some practice to get comfortable with, but it can save a lot of grungework in many situations. 4. How does adding dihedral affect things? (1 student) It has very little effect on the loading, L , D i , etc. It’s mainly an issue for stability and control. 5. Is it aerodynamics that influences taper, or is it structures? (1 student) Both. Wing design almost always involves aero/structural tradeoffs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
