For the tandem wing configuration or the configuration with multiple-lifting surface, Phillips and Snyder [15] presented a numerical lifting-line method, which was based on the Prandtl's original model of a finite wing, to predict the forces and moments acting on a system of lifting surfaces.
In this section, Prandtl's classical lifting-line theory for a single finite wing is presented firstly, and then, the lifting-line theory for tandem wing configuration is proposed on the foundation of Prandtl's classical lifting-line theory combined with the Biot-Savart law.
Traditionally, the distribution of section circulation along the span for a single finite wing, with no sweep or dihedral and having an arbitrary spanwise variation in chord length, can be obtained by solving Prandtl's classical lifting-line equation.
