VARTULI: A NEW GENERATION?

VARTULI: A NEW GENERATION?In the competition of young avtomodelistov as the winter sports season and summer now dominates the aviation scheme snowmobiles and cars. Their scheme is already thoroughly known and, seemingly, has already passed all stages of perfection. Studied and worked out every knot simple models, clear design principles from the point of view of simplicity and reliability, stability of motion and speed of the turn.

However, it turns out, there may be fundamental changes. Of course, once such a categorical claim is impossible: like all such, innovation must pass the stage of working out on sports cars. But for theoretical reasons, the new proposed scheme is more efficient than the traditional, and perhaps her future auromodele.
 
The essence of novelty — in the output stabilizing surface from the zone of air flow from the drive screw. This is achieved in the simplest way: tail boom instead be a continuation of the motor is transferred downward and is located at the surface of the earth. It is very important that the stabilizer, in addition to its leaving the areas of slipstream, the motion of aeromodel will go on the height from the track surface of the track, commensurate with its chord. This means that in the case of the presence of the stabilizer is positive (upward) lift force you can count on ground effect! The profitability of such a situation not only in the reduction of aerodynamic drag, but the damping of the vertical oscillations of the tail section. The fact that in our case, by reducing the location of the stabilizer plus the vertical force will be formed not only due to the increase of angle of attack, but also “compressible” screen “cushion”. As effective will be the action of forces when lifting the tail loss of the load-bearing properties are more pronounced than without the influence of the earth’s surface.
In a number of publications devoted to the design principles of auromodele, you can find remarks about what the aerodynamic improvement of this technology is almost meaningless — in the absence of gross errors in the contours of the cars is still overwhelming all the rest of the increase in the resistance somehow gives one cord thread with the suspension units. All this is true. However, focusing on maximum speed-in and competitive conditions, it is impossible to neglect anything, even the crumbs of reserves.

In our case, the gain in the sense of aerodynamic resistance obtained in two ways. First, as already mentioned, is due to the increase in the efficiency of the damping properties of the stabilizer, and therefore there is the possibility of a sharp decline in its surface. The second option in the output of almost all model elements from the zone of the jet for a propeller in the unperturbed region (with the exception of the engine cowling, and partially cord straps). The latter technique can be considered much more effective to reduce the resistance, rather than all work on the beautification of the forms vartuli classical type. The fact that the improvement of the aerodynamic contours may winnings, only measured the percent resistance, and the output of the air flow is almost two-fold reduction. In fact, forcing the flow from the rotor in terms of the classical model to wash all surfaces, we do the same as if installed on the machine is a kind of air brakes! In reasoning it is important to note that because of the nature of Moto installations of auromodele use propellers with small diameters, whereby to obtain the desired thrust, the rate of drop must be much greater than the speed of the model itself.
From the structural point of view, the new technique is no different from the familiar to avtomodelistov. It is possible, with the proposed layout of machines may experience problems only when rendering approach to the adjustment screw compression ratio of the engine. However, this problem is easily solved if the provision on the head of the adjusting screw, the large diameter washer with knurling on the outer edge. On the assembled model, the washer should be slightly over the edge of the fairing of the engine then the adjustment will be even more convenient than conventional options with an auxiliary key, or the classic Phillips screw.
 
The new model has a feature and balancing. In order to achieve defined display effect on the stabilizer to the reduced area, it is necessary to load sufficiently, in the sense of lift on the calculated driving mode. This can be achieved only by the position of the centre of gravity of the machine, is displaced backward relative to the fulcrum — axis of rotation of the main wheels. Download tail of the aircar is highly undesirable, since any increase in moment of inertia about the transverse axis of the model at once destroys all the achievements of aerodynamics, and damping the chance of vibrations is ineffective and slow. So, the most expedient solution is to shift the axis of the front wheels forward at maximum facilitation of the tail of the car.
 
The rest of the balancing remain unchanged in comparison with models of classic aircraft type.
