I'm currently working on an expanded lifting-line problem. I've got plenty of data, but I need to find the maximum oswald efficiency factor. I've got a table of data of efficiency factors for taper and twist combinations and I need to interpolate to find the maximum in 2 directions. I don't know what the maximum is, nor do I know its location. The curve fits to the data I are not linear. Can any one suggest a scheme? Bonus points for one that is simple (I'll give ya extra special thank you or something like that on here!)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
