Aircraft Wings

  1. May 27, 2007 #1
    Do you guys know of any books with research on aircraft wings? I would like a book which contains comparisons between many types of wings, with their advantages/disadvantages weighed out against one another.

    google NACA for foil shapes
    construction is a whole different subject
    wood and cloth, all metal, plastics, combos of each
    mostly depends on speeds and loads
