material considerations
Material Considerations
  • Paper's density is higher than materials such as balsa wood
  • A conventional origami paper glider has lower performance due to higher drag and imperfect aerodynamics
  • Conventional balsa gliders will always outperform conventional paper aircraft for this reason.
  • However, paper gliders have a far higher strength/thickness ratio
    • A sheet of office-quality 80 g/sq m paper, has approximate in-scale strength of aircraft-grade sheet aluminum

  • There are multiple goals for a flight:

    • Time
    • Aerobatic (looping).
    • Stable flight to understand flight mechanics of a good plane.
  • Statistics is the science of making effective use of numerical data relating to groups of individuals or experiments. It deals with all aspects of this, including not only the collection, analysis and interpretation of such data, but also the planning of the collection of data, in terms of the design of surveys and experiments

Dodge, Y. (2003) The Oxford Dictionary of Statistical Terms, OUP

what is a tree
What is a tree?
  • A tree is a perennial woody plant.
  • It is most often defined as a woody plant that has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground on a single main stem or trunk with clear apical dominance
  • A minimum height specification of a tree varies from 3 - 6 m; sometimes with a minimum of 10 cm trunk diameter.
  • Woody plants that do not meet these definitions by having multiple stems and/or small size, are called shrubs.
  • Trees are long-lived, some reaching several thousand years old.
