Description

Report discussing available wind-tunnel data on low-speed horizontal-tail contribution to the static longitudinal stability of high-speed airplane configurations with unswept and sweptback wings. The effects of variations of tail position, wing plan form, airfoil section, trailing-edge flaps, stall-control devices, and ground interference on air-flow characteristics an tail contribution are also described.

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
