Simulation of Lilienthal's flight in the wind tunnel

Var­i­ous sce­nar­ios were sim­u­lat­ed in the wind tun­nel tests, in par­tic­u­lar Lilien­thal's fate­ful flight from Gol­len­berg on 9 Au­gust 1896. In the low­er left cor­ner of the im­age is the an­gle of align­ment of the front of the glid­er with the wind. The CP scale on the right side de­scribes the air re­sis­tance.

Various scenarios were simulated in the wind tunnel tests, in particular Lilienthal's fateful flight from Gollenberg on 9 August 1896. In the lower left corner of the image is the angle of alignment of the front of the glider with the wind. The CP scale on the right side describes the air resistance.
