Re: L'origine et l'évolution des oiseaux, with a twist

I didn't follow the comment below. A circular cross section dragwire with a diameter of 3/16 inch has roughly about the same drag as a strut with a width of 2 inches, due to the strut's lower drag coefficient. In normally used sizes, struts are far lower drag than wires.

and thus it reduces drag (think of biplane wires vs. struts)
