where cos A(z — = 0 when z <s\ The spanwise variation of total local wing lift coefficient is given by strip theory as where 0 is known from Eq. (13.29) and a is the steady flight wing incidence.

The aileron effectiveness is often measured in terms of the wing-tip helix angle (psj V) per unit aileron displacement during a steady roll. In this condition the rolling moments due to a given aileron deflection, wing twist and aerodynamic damping are in equilibrium so that from Fig. 13.6(a) and Eq. (13.23) and noting that ailerons on opposite wings both contribute to the rolling, we have zdz = 0
