On improving take-off efficiency of airplanes

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Engineering, Physics

On improving take-off efficiency of airplanes Arpan Dey Abstract In this paper, a special model for the airplane wing is proposed. The main aim of the model is to maximize take-off efficiency of airplanes and increase the effectiveness of in-flight maneuvers. The sudden movement of a leading-edge downward-movable control surface in the main wing could, […]
