For the start of its fourth and final season, the TS050 HYBRIDs will compete in high-downforce specification, giving a race debut to the new aerodynamic configuration which was also used during the Prologue test in Barcelona last month.
Compared to its predecessors, the Su-57 combines the functions of an attack plane and a fighter jet while the use of composite materials and innovation technologies and the fighter's aerodynamic configuration ensure the low level of radar and infrared signature.
An impressive 150kg of downforce is provided by a revised aerodynamic configuration including carbon side pods and rear wing plus a front splitter to reduce turbulence around the front wheels.
The fighter jet's aerodynamic configuration increases the aircraft's lifting effectiveness, deflects automatically and allows high angle-of-attack flights.
Successively, the baseline aerodynamic configuration for the vehicle is introduced.
To simulate the real situation of large deformation, the boundary conditions are satisfied on the geometrically exact aerodynamic configuration. Therefore, the generalized boundary condition based on the quasimodes around the static equilibrium configuration can be expressed as follows:
The defense contractor is working on an "aerodynamic configuration" that would allow the successor to the famed SR-71 Blackbird spy plane to fly at Mach 6 speed, Marillyn Hewson, CEO of Lockheed, said in March.
The Yak-130 is the world's only training aircraft with the aerodynamic configuration and subsonic flight performance characteristics of modern jet fighters.
The test model is a lifting, aerodynamic configuration, and the trends of the force and moment coefficients observed in Figure 9 are consistent with those of the blunt, lifting, hypersonic configurations under the given test conditions.
Two airplanes of identical aerodynamic configuration but different gross weight could glide the same distance from the same altitude, but only if the heavier airplane flew at a higher airspeed to support the greater weight at optimum CL.
In addition to receiving expanded TIA, Boeing finalized the aerodynamic configuration of the 787.
