About this title


This comprehensive reference brings together in one place all available information that has been generated over time, both through general research investigations and studies of specific configurations, on the aerodynamic effects induced by the exiting flows of jet and fan powered V/STOL aircraft in hover and transition flight. Authored by several of the foremost authorities in the field, here for the first time is an all-inclusive compilation of existing experimental data along with in-depth discussions on jet interference effects. For the working professional or those in engineering graduate programs, especially those involved with V/STOL, this book will prove an invaluable resource. It also provides the researcher with a starting point for future investigations that could be applied to new aircraft development programs. The unique characteristics of V/STOL flight bring with it unique aerodynamic challenges. This book describes the flow fields generated by the mixing of exit flows with surrounding and free stream air and their effects on the aircraft and the surrounding environment. and if the aircraft is in hover or transitional flight. The aerodynamic/propulsion interactions affect the total lift, drag, and pitching moments, effectiveness of jet reaction control jets; ground effects; thrust loss, landing surface damage, and effects on the operational environment. Each of these issues is fully presented, illustrated, and discussed in detail. In addition, a chapter is devoted to present and future efforts in V/STOL research and how it relates to developing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods for analyzing and estimating the flow fields around these aircraft and their effects. Each of the book's chapters includes an extensive list of references from which the material in that chapter is derived.

About the Author:

Richard E. Kuhn, a graduate of Parks Air College, began his career at the NACA Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory in 1943. His first work in V/STOL included studies on the effectiveness of flap systems in deflecting propeller slipstreams. In 1962, he headed Langley Research Centers Powered Lift Aerodynamics Section and guided the development of the Langley V/STOL Tunnel. He was co-recipient of the SAE Wright Brothers Award for best paper of the year in 1964. During the 1960s and early 1970s, he served as consultant to the U.S. Air Force, NATO, U.S. Department of Transportation and DARPA on various projects and by 1974 was responsible for much of the subsonic and transonic aerodynamic research at Langley. In 1978, he retired from NASA to take a more active role in V/STOL as a consultant and contractor to industry and the government. He has written or co-authored over 100 technical papers most of them in V/STOL and half of them since his retirement from NASA. Mr. Kuhn is an AIAA Associate Fellow and a member of the AIAA V/STOL Committee. He received the AIAAs F.E. Newbold V/STOL Award in 2000.

Richard J. Margason received his Ph.D. in Aeronautical Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School. In 1962, following a stint in the U.S. Army, he began work at NASAs Langley Research Center Powered Lift Aerodynamics Section where he conducted experimental research in STOL, V/STOL and powered-lift aerodynamics rising to Section Head in 1970. During the 1970s and 1980s, he assumed management responsibilities as Head of the Low-Speed Aerodynamics Branch and Head of the Analytical Methods Branch at Langley. In 1986, he served as the Chief of the Fixed-Wing Aerodynamics Branch at Ames Research Center. Dr. Margason also taught aerodynamics classes at George Washington University and San Jose State University during this time. In 1996, he retired from NASA to support the Joint Strike STOVL Fighter Project as a consultant and as a contractor to industry and government on several other projects. He has written or co-authored over 60 technical papers most in the V/STOL area. Dr. Margason is an Associate Fellow of the AIAA.
