The method of Smelt and Davies (1937)[23] can be used to estimate the added wing lift due to the slipstream. It is given by

ACL = s(XCLo – 0.6а0в)


Dx = diameter of slipstream at the wing C. P.

= Щ1 + a)/( 1 + s)]1/2 c = wing chord on center line of slipstream

S = wing area s = a + ax/(D2l4 + x2)l/2 D = propeller diameter a = -* + 1(1 + STJtt)1’2 x = distance of wing C. P. behind propeller CLq = lift coefficient at section on slipstream center line, in absence of the slip­stream

0O = аф/( l + a)

ф = angle between propellor axis and direction of motion. A is an empirical constant given in Fig. B.7,5.

B.8 Wing Pitching Derivative Cmq

The method of USAF Datcom for estimating this derivative for a rigid wing in sub­sonic flow is as follows. The low-speed value (M = 0.2) of Cmq is given by



C, is the wing section lift curve slope from Sec. В. 1 (per rad). Ac/4 is the sweepback angle of the wing chord line.

For higher subsonic speeds the derivative is obtained by applying an approximate compressibility correction.
