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....
