Drag in Aerospace Vehicles

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”
