R E Knight: 132. The Utilization of Weight Data in Aerodynamic Analysis. 1956.



This paper deals with the utilization of weight data in aerodynamic analysis. The word ‘weight’ also includes the determination of the center of gravity locations and the effects of weight distribution, which are handled in the forms of moments of inertia and products of inertia.
This paper attempts to show the interdependence between the entire field of aerodynamics and weights. It is hoped that it may be both beneficial in clarifying the need for weight data by the Aerodynamicist, and that it may be effective in forming a bond of mutual understanding between the two groups for more efficient aeronautical design in the years ahead.
