Abstract
Derivations are given for the calculation of section camberline from a given segmented chordwise load distribution, and for the inverse problem. In both cases, the algorithms are exact within the limits of thin-wing theory. From these derivations, codes were developed which are included in the section design procedure at DREA. The results from example cases show very good agreement with analytical solutions, even for the extreme situation of infinite leading or trailing edge slopes.
