Lift and drag force calculation methods using non‐linear section data. History and recent research
In this article history and development of calculation methods of wing characteristics are presented. The development process includes the beginning in 1918 by Prandtl's classical lifting line theory and leads to resent research. The most attention is paid to non‐linear section data implementation methods in the calculation of finite span wing. The research of Philips and Snyder, Barnes, and Sivells and Neely is discussed.
