AAE 334, Fall 2011, Homework 13 Due Friday, September 30, at the beginning of class. 1. Increasing the aspect ratio of a rectangular wing by increasing span while keeping chord, velocity, density, and lift force constant causes what change induced drag? Show your work. Induced drag coefficient is given by:   1 2 AR C C L Di and thus, induced drag force is given by:   1 2 2 2 S q L qS D i or       1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 b q L S b qS L qS L D i or,   2 2 1 1 b q L D i . Thus increasing the span reduces induce drag. Some of you noted that we need to be concerned about changes in the induced drag factor. I didn’t intend this step, but yes, it is correct. The rightmost ends of the curves in Figure 5.20 show that 100 for rectangular wings. Thus our equation for induced drag becomes,
