The architecture of the two cars is based on a monolithic form with an aerodynamic wing profile where the complete absence of a roof and windscreen gave the designers the freedom to create unique proportions that would not have been possible on a traditional spider.
The lower wing profile adds to its distinctive look.
Prior to reaching power lines just east of the arena, the airplane began a steep right turn; witnesses could see its complete wing profile. The turn progressed, with the nose pointing up, and then dropping back down, as the airplane passed out of view behind trees.
The geometric properties of the wing profile used in this study are given as follows: area=2847.52 [mm.sup.2] and center of gravity with respect to global system of coordinates: x=0, y=0, z=-66.79 mm.
Airbus has boosted the superjumbo's performance by adding refinements such as a more aerodynamic wing profile. Emirates A380s flying today are already three or four tonnes lighter than when the carrier took its first planes, and other improvements from the Toulouse, France-based manufacturer are likely once fixes for wing cracks have been fully introduced, Clark said.
Blades have the shape corresponding to the aerodynamic wing profile. Fig.
This paper aims at researching the aerodynamic characteristics of frigate wing profile, and extracting the general rules to provide some ideas for designing aircraft wings.
