Effect of taper ratio on the low-speed rolling stability derivatives of swept and unswept wings of aspect ratio 2.61

One of 5,163 reports in the series: NACA Research Memorandums available on this site.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Report discussing testing on a series of tapered swept wings under conditions simulating rolling flight. The lift, longitudinal-force, and pitching-moment characteristics for three swept wings are provided. The results indicated that a decrease in taper ratio on a swept wing caused a small decrease in damping in roll at low and moderate lift coefficients.

Creation Information

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).
