Lift in Supersonic Flight

17 April, 2012 Posted by Christopher Jenner
Lift in Supersonic Flight My last post on subsonic lift got me thinking about the possible differences with supersonic lift. It has turned out to be an interesting area due to the difference in lift mechanisms and flow patterns. In subsonic flight the wing generates lift by means of accelerating the flow around the top surface of the […] Read more»

Subsonic Lift (Bernoulli’s Principle)

10 April, 2012 Posted by Christopher Jenner
Subsonic Lift (Bernoulli’s Principle) I just finished reading about current fighter design, one thing led to another and I ended up looking into lift mechanisms along with flow patterns over subsonic airfoils. In subsonic incompressible flight the lift generated can be determined in terms of pressure using the Bernoulli’s principle and law of conservation of […] Read more»
