This video is extremely frustrating. He says that the air doesn't travel both the top and bottom of the wing in the same time but doesn't offer up an alternative explanation as to how pressure gradients are generated!! I've done some research on this topic, as aviation has always amazed me. There doesn't seem to be an answer.
Yes, I agree. I want to find where he posted this originally with some more explanation. The article itself is useless.
Here we go: http://iopscience.iop.org/0031-9120/38/6/001/pdf/pe3_6_001.pdf
The article says a little bit about it. They seem to be talking in circles. The air does move faster, but the increase doesn't cause the pressure drop. Instead the pressure drop causes the increase. AHHH! Bloody Brits!
It appears I have already downloaded that pdf file. What are the odds?
how 'bout that!
I need to print this out, read it and digest it.
There are some recent articles on this as well: 1) http://www.allstar.fiu.edu/AERO/Flightrevisited.pdf 2) http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/bernnew.html 3) http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/wrong1.html
