The Modern TwinFin Tail

The Modern TwinFin Tail AS in the case of endplate fins, inset fins have the effect of increasing the effective aspect ratio of the tail plane, but to a somewhat less extent. The tail with fins will be compared with an untwisted elliptical tail without fins, because this method of comparison is very clear and being also used to compare wings of different shapes is familiar to people concerned with aerodynamic problems. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

AS in the case of endplate fins, inset fins have the effect of increasing the effective aspect ratio of the tail plane, but to a somewhat less extent. The tail with fins will be compared with an untwisted elliptical tail without fins, because this method of comparison is very clear and being also used to compare wings of different shapes is familiar to people concerned with aerodynamic problems.
