During design, development, and performance evaluation of an aerospace vehicle, vehicle drag is estimated to :
- determine flight characteristics, such as range, endurance, maneuverability.
- Propulsion system sizing.
- Effect of payload/carriage of aircraft performance.
The design life-cycle majorly consists of three phases,(i) conceptual, (ii) preliminary, and (iii)critical design phases. Continue reading “Drag in Aerospace Vehicles”
