How to Calculate Drag during ground effect?
Drag during ground effect calculator uses Drag Force=(Parasite Drag coefficient+(((lift coefficient^2)*Ground effect factor)/(pi*Oswald efficiency factor*Aspect Ratio of a wing)))*(0.5*Freestream density*(Velocity^2)*Reference Area) to calculate the Drag Force, The Drag during ground effect is the aerodynamic drag that an aircraft's wings generate during takeoff and is a function of the ground effect factor. Drag Force and is denoted by F_{D symbol.
How to calculate Drag during ground effect using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Drag during ground effect, enter Parasite Drag coefficient (CD,e), lift coefficient (CL), Ground effect factor (ϕ), Oswald efficiency factor (e), Aspect Ratio of a wing (AR), Freestream density (ρ∞), Velocity (v) and Reference Area (S) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Drag during ground effect calculation can be explained with given input values -> 125312.3 = (5+(((10^2)*0.4)/(pi*0.5*4)))*(0.5*1.225*(60^2)*5).}
