Calculation of the forces and moments on a slender fuselage and vertical fin penetrating lateral gusts
Description: A theory is presented for calculating the variation with frequency of the lateral-force and yawing-moment coefficients due to sinusoidal side gusts passing over the profile of a simple fuselage-vertical-fin combination. The analysis is based on slender-body theory. The method considers the penetration effect of both fuselage and vertical tail in calculating side force and yawing moment due to side gusts, as opposed to a simple lag concept which considers the flow angle to be uniform over the configuration.
