Good day,
I do not understand the side slip.
How is it possible that if the RAF comes from the left, then the left wing will slip down and induce a left roll ?
part of the right wing would be covered by fuselage, so less lift, so it should be the right wing who goes down......

Thank you for your answer.
It is a bit more clear to me now, thanks for the picture.

Thank you very much for your answer.
therefore, we will have more lift on the up going wing.
So what do we call roll damping precisely ?
is it the fact that the plane tends to roll back to stable position ?

Roll damping
good day everyone,
i struggle to understand the concept of roll damping.
I a steady turn, I do not understand how alpha can vary from one wing to another.
Is there a way to have a drawing illustrating this phenomena ?
many thanks...

With roll damping, the rolling force is a function of IAS but the change in angle of attack is a function of TAS, that means that you will have : More damping at MSL
Explanation : More TAS for IAS at altitude, so less change in angle of attack. Therefore, at altitude there will be less...
