Aero Design Series – Airplane Stability Playlist

Seven videos are up on airplane stability! Ever wonder why aiplanes have stabilizers on the aft of the tail? How do they work? Why are they there? Where does the center of gravity of the aircraft relative to the wings

Aero Design Series – Airfoils – Part 4: Physical Interpretation of Coefficient of Moment

In this 4th video in a series of 4 about airfoils, we search for a physical understanding and interpretation of the coefficient of moment “Cm” of airfoils. This parameter is often confusing to grasp at first, but a physical understanding

Aero Design Series – Airfoils – Part 3: Interpreting Cl and Cd

In the first 2 videos about airfoils we have imported airfoil curves into SolidWorks from airfoiltools.com. In the 3rd and 4th videos in the series of 4 we delve into physical interpretations of the performance parameters of airfoils. In this
