For your independent project, create an instructional presentation. Create a V-G diagram specific to your aircraft “Cessna 172” at a selected weight and atmospheric condition and explain how the V-G diagram can be utilized to identify specific maneuvering parameters. For inputs on how the V-G diagram is developed, review the discussion in the Flight Theory and Aerodynamics book (Dole, Lewis, Badick, & Johnson, 2017, pp. 229-235)
As in previous assignments, you will need to research a variety of additional information such as required formulas and pertinent aircraft data and/or assume a few parameters for your aircraft. Please make sure to detail those:
Again, the emphasis in this project task is on explaining your methodology as if you attempted to instruct someone unfamiliar with the aerodynamic details and relationships. Therefore, make sure to detail all assumptions, all formulas used, and all steps that were taken.
As previously, you are encouraged to utilize appropriate computational software such as Excel® or MatLab®.
