The aircraft generates lift by moving quickly through the air. The wings of the vehicle have aerofoil shaped cross-sections. For a given flow speed with the aero

an angle of attack to the oncoming airstream, a pressure difference between upper and lower wing surfaces will be created. There will be a high pressure regio

underneath and a very low pressure region on top. The difference in these pressure forces creates lift on the wing. The lift produced will be proportional to the

aircaft; the square of its velocity; the density of the surrounding air and the angle of attack of the wing to on-coming flow.

To simplify the problem, lift is typically measured as a non-dimensional coefficient.

In the normal range of operations the variation of lift coefficent with angle of attack of the vehicle will be approximately linear,

where

Lift coefficient increases up to a maximum value at which point the wing flow stalls and lift reduces.

The values of the lift curve gradient and maximum lift coefficient are effected by the shape of the wing, its twist distribution, the type of aerofoil section used, th

configuration and most importantly by the amount of downwash flow induced on the wing by the trailing wing tip vortices.

A simple approximation for straight, moderate to high aspect ratio wings is to assume an elliptical spanwise load distribution which gives the following result,

where it is assumed that the rate of lift coefficient change for a two-dimensional section is 2 / radian

Calculation of zero angle lift coefficient or zero lift angle can be done by crudely assuming that the zero lift angle for the aircraft equals the zero lift angle of the

section adjusted for the wing incidence setting. Section zero lift angle can be calculated from analysis of the section geometry using a method such as thin-aer

theory or panel method analysis.

A rough approximation is that zero lift angle for the section lies between -3o and -1.5o. Calculation of maximum lift coefficient can be again take as approximate

to the two dimensional section value minus 5% due to the negative lift needed at the tailplane to maintain moment equilibrium. A typical CL versus graph is s

the following Figure. Results for the two-dimensional section and an aspect ratio 7 rectangular wing using this section are shown.

For swept wings, wings with complex taper or wings with flaps, a more accurate calculation needs to be undertaken using either lifting line theory or the vortex

method.

From the the typical lift coefficient graph, it can be seen that there exists a maximum lift coefficient (CL(max)) for the aircraft. This sets the absolute lower spee

flight. If the aircraft attempts level flight below this minimum speed then, for Lift to equal Weight, with other parameters ( such as density and area ) fixed, then

aircraft would require an attitude that produced a lift coefficient larger than the maximum possible.

Using angles of attack that exceed the maximum lift coefficient causes the wing flow to separate and the aircraft to stall. So, the minimum speed where the airc

maximum attitude and maximum lift coefficient is called the stall speed.

By applying the equilibrium equation at this speed, the stall conditions can be calculated.

so stall speed will be
