These are, by the definition of the camber line, equal. These distances may be measured at all points along the chord and then plotted against x from a straight line. The result is a symmetrical shape, called the thickness distribution or symmetrical fairing. An important parameter of the thickness distribution is the maximum thickness, or depth, t . This, when expressed as a fraction of the chord, is called the thickness/ chord ratio. It is commonly expressed as a percentage 100t/c%. Current values in use range from 13% to 18% for subsonic aircraft down to 3% or so for supersonic aircraft.

Which cases are dynamically similar to the aircraft in flight, given as case (A)? 5 10 +15 54 Case (F) 3 10 +15 54 Case (A) represents the full-size aircraft at 6000 m. The other cases represent models under test in various types of wind-tunnel. Cases (C), (E) and (F), where the relative density is greater than unity, represent a special type of tunnel, the compressed-air tunnel, which may be operated at static pressures in excess of atmospheric. 24 Aerodynamics for Engineering Students From the figures given above, the Reynolds number VDp/pmay be calculated for each case.

28 Aerodynamics for Engineering Students L Lift Cross-wind moment Fig. 8 The systems of force and moment components. The broad arrows represent forces used in elementary work; the line arrows, the system in control and stability studies. The moments are common to both systems The relation between these components is shown in Fig. 8. In each case the arrow shows the direction of the positive force or moment. All three forces are mutually perpendicular, and each moment acts about the line of one of the forces.
