Description

From Introduction: "The importance of this aeroelastic phenomenon has been recognized for some time, and several investigators have developed more or less refined methods for analysis of wing elastic distortions and their effects. (For examples, see refs. 1 to 4.) More specific evidence as to the influence of wing external geometry (in conjunction with flight condition) on this flexibility-longitudinial-stability problem would appear to be of interest to the aerodynamicist, however, so that he can obtain rough indications as to which wing plan forms would be practical from aeroelastic considerations."

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).
