What Is Meant by the Aspect Ratio?
Aspect Ratio = Span or Area .
Aspect ratio affects the lift curve. A high aspect ratio wing will have a higher maximum CL but a lower stalling angle than a low aspect ratio wing with the same aerofoil.
High aspect ratio wings produce less induced drag than low aspect ratio wings.
