What is the ground effect in aerodynamics?

For fixed-wing aircraft, the ground effect is the reduced aerodynamic drag that an aircraft's wings generate when they are close to a fixed surface.

How to Calculate Ground effect factor?

Ground effect factor calculator uses Ground effect factor=((16*Height/Wingspan)^2)/(1+((16*Height/Wingspan)^2)) to calculate the Ground effect factor, The Ground effect factor is a function of the height of the wing above the ground and the wingspan of the aircraft. Ground effect factor and is denoted by ϕ symbol.

How to calculate Ground effect factor using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Ground effect factor, enter Height (h) and Wingspan (b) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Ground effect factor calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.93649 = ((16*12/50)^2)/(1+((16*12/50)^2)).

FAQ

What is Ground effect factor?
The Ground effect factor is a function of the height of the wing above the ground and the wingspan of the aircraft and is represented as ϕ=((16*h/b)^2)/(1+((16*h/b)^2)) or Ground effect factor=((16*Height/Wingspan)^2)/(1+((16*Height/Wingspan)^2)). Height is the distance between the lowest and highest points of a person standing upright and The Wingspan (or just span) of a bird or an airplane is the distance from one wingtip to the other wingtip.
How to calculate Ground effect factor?
The Ground effect factor is a function of the height of the wing above the ground and the wingspan of the aircraft is calculated using Ground effect factor=((16*Height/Wingspan)^2)/(1+((16*Height/Wingspan)^2)). To calculate Ground effect factor, you need Height (h) and Wingspan (b). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Height and Wingspan and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
