yumanensis, nor did wing loading
or aspect ratio (Table 2).
Body size has been suggested (5) to be an inaccurate predictor of the success of conservative treatment for coracoid injuries in birds, whereas aspect ratio and wing loading
have been suggested (5) as better indicators.
Lasionycteris noctivagans has intermediate wing loading
associated with its smaller size (12-15 g), which allows for relatively slow maneuverable flight.
is the weight (mass x gravity constant) divided by wing area (S) and is proportional to fight speed.
While not all park flyers can bring their models indoors, and not all indoor models can be flown in the park, there is a good blend of technologies that can allow both objectives to be satisfied, depending upon wing loading
and available flying sites.
Given the need for a high wing loading
, low overall weight, and structural strength and simplicity, it's no surprise that Sky Car's structure is made of honeycomb graphite composites.
A composite trait, "wing loading
," was calculated as mass divided by the area of the fruit.
As for the wing/thorax ratio, it is inversely proportional to wing loading
, and presumably related to flight and dispersal capacity (David et al.
Increased wing loading
, or pounds of plane per square foot of wing, has been found to decrease accident rates.
With its low wing loading
a J-3 is big-time susceptible to wind gusts and shear.
However, generating enough lift is a constant challenge in designing flapping wing MAVs, which mostly relies on wing performances such as flapping frequency, wing surface, aspect ratio, flapping amplitude, lift coefficient, and wing loading
. Therefore, wing design remains a challenging task.
It was a little choppy that day but the F-16 has the wing loading
of a manhole cover, so it wasn't too bad.
