1. Pisoni, Joseph. Experimental Estimation of Power Effects on Neutral Point Location.

Degree: MS, Aerospace Engineering, 2004, North Carolina State University

Two approaches were taken to estimate the power effects on the neutral point of an unmanned aerial vehicle. The first approach was the solution of two simultaneous equations for the aircraft pitch stiffness, Cma. The second approach was the comparison of a computer code predicted, power-off neutral point location to a flight data estimated power-on neutral point. The approaches are explained and each was attempted. Flight-testing was conducted with a UAV weighing 23 lbs. and a wingspan of 7.5 ft. The solution of two simultaneous equations was not completed due to flight-testing mishaps and time constraints. This failure led to the second approach. The computer code/flight estimation of power effects on the neutral point was completed. The result was estimates for the power effects on the neutral point and the change in the propeller normal force with changes in angle of attack, (CNp)α. Aircraft designers can use these estimates to better predict static stability of future aircraft designs. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Charles (Chuck) Hall, Committee Chair (advisor).

2. Kóňa, Marián. Aerodynamický návrh transsonického bezpilotního kluzáku: Aerodynamic design of transonic UAV glider.

Degree: 2019, Brno University of Technology

This master thesis is focused on aerodynamic design of transonic glider, which is assigned for following an airliner at cruising regime of flight. Main goal of the thesis is to determine basic geometrical design of airplane with respect to Whitcomb aera rule, mass analysis and drag polar. Weight analysis includes determining center of gravity according to longitudinal static stability margin. The drag polar of the airplane is determine for cruising regime of flight, that means the regime of following an airliner. Advisors/Committee Members: Zikmund, Pavel (advisor), Pejchar, Jan (referee).

3. Rao, Arjun. Measurement of aerodynamic characteristics of MAVs using motion tracking.

Degree: MS, 4048, 2012, University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign

Aerodynamic characteristics of Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) is not well addressed in aeronautics literature, and more experimental data are required to help better understand the behavior of fixed-wing MAVs. In the current research, aerodynamic and stability characteristics of two MAVs were measured using a motion tracking system. Both the aircraft position and propeller rotation were tracked. The aircraft used were flat foam surface, highly aerobatic RC models. Tests were conducted for unpowered and powered flight conditions to assess the aerodynamic performance of a commercially manufactured Extra 300 3D and a custom-built Extra 260 with wingspans of 42.67 cm (16.8 in) and 41.27 cm (16.25 in), respectively. A comparison of theoretical calculations with experimental results was made for parameters such as the lift curve and neutral point location. The aircraft used in this research operated in a Reynolds number range of 20,000 to 30,000. Low Reynolds numbers effects that influence the aerodynamic characteristics and performance of the aircraft are discussed in this thesis. The behavior of MAVs in powered flight was analyzed by testing the Extra 300 3D over a range of propeller advance ratios (J = 0.3–1.0) with the propeller running at pre-determined speeds (RPM). A thrust model was developed for a commercially manufactured propeller, and the lift and drag characteristics of the aircraft was analyzed. The results indicate that the propeller induced flow influences the aerodynamic performance of the aircraft. Results indicate a delay in the onset of stall, an increase in the lift curve slope, and reduction in drag with decreasing advance ratios (J). The results show a myriad of interesting aerodynamic trends that are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Selig, Michael S. (advisor).
