Monoplane vs. biplane wing drag = Parasite Drag + Induced Drag Parasite drag is a function of Skin-Friction which depends on Wing Chord Induced Drag is very strongly effected by Aspect Ratio Constant lift, speed & overall dimension - Why interest biplane plane concept ? - high parasite drag (skinfriction drag) due to boundary layer - Low induced drag because of higher aspect ratio Biplanes were most successfully marketed in the early days of aviation when the wing sections used were very thin and consequently the wing structure needed to be strengthened by external bracing wires. The biplane configuration allowed the two wings to be braced against one another, increasing the structural strength. The big disadvantage of the biplane layout was that the two wings interfered with one another aerodynamically, each reducing the lift produced by the other. P6/29

**Parasite and Induced Drag**

Department of Aerodynamics SUPAERO Parasite and Induced Drag 55 - Why interest biplane plane concept ? - high parasite drag (skinfriction drag) due to boundary layer - Low induced drag because of higher aspect ratio The zone which biplane has total drag less than monoplane configuration (when Induced drag > 45% total drag)

32
**Parasite and Induced Drag**

Airplane drag = Parasite Drag + Induced Drag Parasite drag is a function of Skin-Friction which depends on Wing Chord Induced Drag is very strongly effected by Aspect Ratio The zone which biplane has total drag less than monoplane configuration (when Induced drag > 45% total drag) case a.)

33
**Results Reynolds number effect on L/D**

Winglet can improve wing performance Gap increases the lift slope and maximum lift L/D increased by positive stagger Stall angle and maximum lift changed by decalage angle Parasite drag from the strut between two wing is very important The induced drag is independent of the stagger angle (Munk's stagger theorem). If the system is unstaggered then D_ij = D_ji. which is Munk's reciprocity theorem. The induced drag of a multiplane system does not change if the elements are translated in a direction parallel to the direction of flight.

35
Why are these 16 models ? The Taguchi method was used in the first experimental design table. But an interaction between each parameters is very strong. To determine the optimizing model, some interpolation was formed to complete the experimental table.
