In steady level ﬂight we have N = 1. The net loading q ( y ) produces shear S ( y ) and bending moment M ( y ) in the beam structure. This resultant distribution produces a deﬂection angle θ ( y ), and deﬂection w ( y ) of the beam, as sketched in Figure 1. net loading q(y) = L’(y) − N g m’(y) L’(y) − N g m’(y) aero loading θ y gravity + inertial w loading q S M y y y y y 0 b/ 2 Figure 1: Aerodynamic and mass loadings, and resulting structural loads and deﬂection. 1 The standard differential equations derived via simple Bernoulli-Euler beam model, with the primary structural axis along the y direction, relate the loads and deﬂections to the loading q ( y ) and the bending stiffness EI ( y ). d S = q dy (2) dM = S dy (3) M dθ = dy (4) EI dw = θ dy (5) To allow integration of these equations, it’s necessary to impose four boundary conditions. For a cantilevered wing beam, they are y = b/ 2 : S = 0 (6) y = b/ 2 : M = 0 (7) y = 0 : θ = 0 (8) y = 0 : w = 0 (9) Load Distribution The lift distribution L ′ ( y ) needed to define q ( y ) depends on the induced angle α i ( y ) and hence the overall wing shape in a complicated manner. hence the overall wing shape in a complicated manner....
