But that speed usually is painfully slow, so most operators opt for something higher on the parasite drag curve
The way BC-based programs work is to use the drag curve
of a standard projectile as a baseline.
When certifying a vehicle's fuel economy, the drag curve
coefficients are set to match the results of a coast down test .
Drag coefficient is an exact representation of a bullet's drag, and when matched against Doppler-recorded velocities, it produces an exact drag curve
of a projectile as a function of velocity.
Mike Rice, PENN Brand Manager, said what you need is a reel with a long range in the drag curve
Although work to cater for the new large airliner is well in hand at some airports, particularly in Asia, at others it is considered to be lagging behind the drag curve
and has been much slower to be initiated.
0 m may underlie errors of extrapolation using the drag curve
The actual drag curve
, as measured by radar, now matched what modeling predicted.
, there's something similar going on with flap deployment, i.
Examining the steep upward slope of the drag curve
in the slow speed regime shows an aircraft "only" four percent overweight will experience degraded climb performance much greater than four percent, and probably far more than the drag caused by a "low tire.
The minimum point on the drag curve
represents maximum-range airspeed.
The chart below graphically depicts the relationship of speeds for best range and for best endurance, plotted along the total drag curve
(see page 19).
