Description

  • Content Description: Report presenting an investigation of the effectiveness of a wing equipped with large-chord slotted flaps in rotating the thrust vector of propellers through the angles required for vertical take-off and for flight at very low speeds in the 300 mph 7- by 10-foot tunnel. Results regarding static-thrust condition, tests with forward speed, and comparison of results for plain-flap and slotted-flap configurations are provided.
