Riassunto analitico
An analysis of low-speed aerodynamics for an unconventional aircraft configuration has<br>been carried out. This configuration, named Prandtlplane, implements Prandtl&#39;s Best Wing<br>System for low induced drag.<br>The state of the art of high-lift systems on civil aircraft and their historical trends have been reviewed in order to correctly identify the issues to be addressed. <br>Lift requirements suitable<br>to the investigated unconventional configuration have been assessed and several prospective high lift system layouts have been screened against these criteria.<br>A suite of aerodynamic design tools and procedures has been assembled, thoroughly validated and applied to the analysis and modification of the selected low speed<br>configurations.<br>Preliminary results concerning the peculiar high-lift aerodynamics of the Prandtlplane have<br>been summarized and recommendations for further investigations have been made.
