Many people would be insulted receiving a Christmas message that is obviously straight out of a lazy prompt to ChatGPT. However I get a feeling maybe you know this, and just have a unique sense of humor… :upside_down_face:

I sincerely hope nobody was “Insulted”. that was in no way intended.

But it does look as if 2024 will be the “Year of AI, especially ChatGPT”
for better or worse…

Didn’t think it would have any use in our line of work, but I may be mistaken. When asked to find the Oswald Efficiency Factor for a B-29;

The B-29 Superfortress had a wingspan of 141 feet 3 inches and an aspect ratio of 11.56 2. Using the chord length at the root of the wing, we can calculate the mean chord of the wing as follows:
Mean Chord=32croot​​=32×19 ft​=338​ ft≈12.67 ft
Substituting the values for the B-29 Superfortress wing, we get:
where AR is the aspect ratio of the wing, b is the wingspan, c is the chord length at a given spanwise location, and ctip​ is the chord length at the wingtip
Substituting the values for the B-29 Superfortress wing, we get:
Therefore, the Oswald efficiency factor of the whole wing of the B-29 Superfortress is approximately 0.78
