  • Content Description: "This note presents the results of flight pressure distribution tests on the right upper wing panel of a Douglas M-3 airplane equipped in turn with a standard Navy elliptical tip and a tip having the same plan form but modified in its front elevation from the swept-up aspect of the standard tip to a symmetrical aspect. The results are given in such form that the load distribution for any normal-force coefficient within the usual range encountered in flight may easily be determined. The results indicate that the modification in front elevation of the tip had no appreciable effect on the load distribution" (p. 1).
