This lesson covers the generation of forces and moments on an aircraft, focusing on the integration of pressure and shear stress to obtain these forces and moments. The lesson uses an airfoil as an example to illustrate the relationship between different force components and their relation with the angle of attack. It also explores non-dimensional coefficients for forces, moments, pressure, and skin friction as they apply to 2D and 3D bodies. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the integration of pressure and shear stress distribution on an airfoil, and how this leads to the generation of normal force, axial force, and pitching moment.
