    A study was conducted of the possibility to use the results obtained by Bera (1974) in the design of wings of low drag. The case in which the wings are subjected to a given lift is investigated. The results of the study are presented in a number of graphs showing conical twist distributions, basic wing camber surfaces, optimum wing camber surfaces, and sample spanwise pressure distribution of basic and minimum drag shapes
