AAE 334, Fall 2011, Homework 14 Due Monday, October 3 at the beginning of class. Building on homework 11: Consider a single horseshoe vortex of span i b centered on the origin of the coordinate system,     0 , 0 , y x , in the z=0 plane as shown below in a view from above the wing. The strength of the vortex is i . We wish to formulate a solution to be computed for the induced drag on a wing of span i b b that is created by the downwash of the upwind wing. That is, the downwash of the second wing on itself is covered in the text we will add that in for a computer project. For this assignment, compute the induced drag assuming: Density is constant and is called Flight velocity is constant and is called V Both wings are in the z=0 plane The second wing is centered at the point (x 2 , y 2 ) and has circulation distribution   j y The second wing is divided into N equal-length segments along the span and the downwash is computed at the point (x
