Flight tests of tow wire forces while flying a racetrack pattern

Abstract [en]

Airplane towing of a target has been investigated. Twelve flights with different airplane speeds and turn radii are studied. The force at the airplane end of the wire, and the airplane and the target paths are plotted. The maximum force in the wire occurs after the airplane turn is finished due to whip effect. The occurrence of maximum and minimum values for the vertical distance between airplane and target is demonstrated. The experimental results are compared with theoretical results for the conditions of the experiments. The overall agreement is considered satisfactory. Therefore theoretical graphs on the maximum force in the wire as a function of airplane speed and turn radius can be used to avoid wire failure
