Aerospace Points of action for thrust and drag forces and lift-drag ratio

  1. Mar 20, 2012 #1
    Hi,

    Can anyone help explaining the points of action of drag and thrust forces on an aeroplane in flight and also the realtionship between Lift-Drag ration and wing configuration?!



    Any help would be great!

    I would check out

    They will either have some of what you seek or links to where it could be found.

    Multiplayer combat sim forums have much discussion on lift to drag ratio because your virtual life depends on this knowledge in the arenas.

    Warbirds, IL2, Aces High II.......etc.
