Title: Optimal lifting surfaces, including end plates, ground effect & thickness / David William Fin Standingford.
Author: Standingford, David William Fin
Issue Date: 1997
School/Discipline: Dept. of Applied Mathematics
Abstract: The task of calculating the aerodynamic load distribution on a thin three-dimensional lifting surface or wing of finite aspect ratio at small angle of attack presents difficulties for most numerical methods. The two-dimensional lifting-surface integral equation that must be solved is highly singular, and does not possess analytic solutions, even for simple plan-form geometries such as rectangles or ellipses.
