Description: An investigation of the rolling effectiveness at transonic and supersonic speeds of partial-span ailerons on a 42.7 degree sweptback wing having symmetrical circular-arc airfoil sections of 10-percent thickness ratio normal to the wing quarter-chord line has been made by means of rocket-propelled test vehicles. The results are compared with results of a supersonic wind-tunnel test at Mach number 1.9.
