Aerodynamics is the study of forces and the way air moves around objects, such as the wing of an aircraft or a vehicle launching into space. The four forces of flight are lift, weight, thrust and drag. The RAeS Aerodynamics Group brings together industry, research establishments and academia studying these forces to assist engineers in understanding how aircraft can overcome gravity to move through the area at different speeds.
The Society’s Aerodynamics Group:
The Group organises a regular Applied Aerodynamics Conference as well as hosting the Lanchester Named Lecture.
