Physics: Prandtl and the Minimum Induced Drag


Date: November 1, 2018
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: ME Auditorium

The November 1, 2018 Physics lecture is titled “Prandtl and the Minimum Induced Drag” with Dr. AI Bowers, NASA Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center. Event will be held in ME Auditorium at 3:00 p.m.

For nearly a century Ludwig Prandtl’s lifting-line theory remains the standard tool for understanding and analyzing aircraft wings. The tool was thought to point to the elliptical spanload as the most efficient wing choice, and it has become the standard in aviation. Avian researchers have used the elliptical spanload virtually since its introduction. Yet research in bird flight has generated increasing data incongruous with the elliptical spanload. In 1933 Prandtl published a little-known paper presenting a superior spanload: any other solution produces greater drag.
