Are there any references or analytical methods to estimate the moment coefficient about the aerodynamic center, C_M,ac for a given wing-body combination? Even something rough would be useful such as "adding fuselage to the wing increases magnitude of CMac by ~x%". If anything, I'm looking for a conservative estimate that overpredicts C_M,ac for some 1st principals structural calcs.
I understand that C_M,ac for the wing alone can be obtained from XFOIL/airfoil databases. Adding a fuselage will contribute a negative increment to C_M,ac. The resulting C_M,ac for wing-body is usually measured in a wind tunnel.
Wind tunnel measurements are used to characterize interference effects between the wing and fuselage, which are difficult to predict theoretically. Because of this, the moment due to the wing-body combination isn't simply just the sum of the separate wing and fuselage moments. This being understood, I wonder if the sum of individual moments would give a conservative estimate for C_M,ac that I can use.
