Find the Wrong staement on Load

Factor
a) It is traditionally referred to as ‘g’,
because of the relation between
load factor and apparent
acceleration of gravity felt on board
the aircraft.
b) Although, it is traditionally referred
to as ‘g’, it does not take the unit of
acceleration due to gravity (m/s2)1111,

Find the wrong staatement on tail wing

a) The conventional configuration with
a low horizontal tail is a natural
choice since roots of both horizontal
and vertical surfaces are
conveniently attached directly to the
fuselage.
b) In conventional configuration, the
effectiveness of the vertical tail is

large because interference with the

Kelvins theorem in fluid dynamics

states that the circulation (defined as
the line integral of the component of
velocity tangential to the closed
contour) in an inviscid and
incompressible fluid subject to only
conservative forces is constant.

In fluid mechanics, Helmholtz's

theorems, named after
Hermann von Helmholtz, describe the
three-dimensional motion of fluid in
the vicinity of vortex filaments. These
theorems apply to inviscid flows and
flows where the influence of
viscous forces is small and can be
ignored.
Helmholtz’s three theorems are as

Limitations of Airy’s Stress functions

The Airy’s Stress function is applicable only to plane strain or plane stress problem .

The Airy’s Stress function can only be used if the body force has a special form .

Specifically, the requirement is

∂Ω ∂Ω
where F = F =
is a scalar function of position, F1 & 1F2 are body forces.
2
∂x1 ∂x2
The Airy’s Stress function approach works best for problems where a solid is subjected to prescribed
tractions on its Ω
boundary, rather than prescribed displacements .
