Aerodynamic moment characteristics of tandem-scheme aircraft

Aerodynamic interference between forward and back wings of tandem-scheme aircraft significantly affects its pitch and roll moments. The interference increases roll stability in a narrow range of sideslip angles; there is a kink on the dependence of roll moment coefficient versus sideslip angle (that is not observed for conventional-scheme aircraft). Directional stability is decreased by a dihedral angle of forward wings and winglets on them but is increased by the same factors for back wings. If back wings’ bending is significant, then aerodynamic interference may affect directional stability as well. The vortex system of tandem-wings at a sideslip angle was modeled incorrectly by the used CFD method (solving RANS), and further research is needed. The analytical and experimental methods show a good agreement concerning moment characteristics.
