Iteration 1: Aspect Ratio#

from unyt import m, mm

TODO: references

Initial design#

b = 3050*mm # wingspan
c = 200*mm # chord
S = b*c # wing area
AR = b**2/S # = b/c because it's a rectangle
unyt_quantity(15.25, '(dimensionless)')

Hmmm ok this is a little much…

The higher the better obviously but I want to be realistic with the materials I plan to use (styrofoam & wood spar) which means <13 is probably a better starting point.
