Based on the force characteristics of seaplane at takeoff,a method of combining the theoretical analysis and empirical formula was employed to study the resistance performance of the seaplane of medium and high speed,considering of the aerodynamic distribution effect from the aerofoil and airscrew.The aerodynamic drag,calm water resistance and total resistance of a sample seaplane model were calculated,and the comparison between the calculations and experiments showed that the calculation… CONTINUE READING
