Free-flight investigation of the rolling effectiveness at high subsonic, transonic, and supersonic speeds of leading-edge and trailing-edge ailerons in conjunction with tapered and untapered plan forms

One of 5,164 reports in the series: NACA Research Memorandums available on this site.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Report presenting several rectangular and tapered wing configurations with leading-edge and trailing-edge ailerons tested as part of a general investigation of an aerodynamic control at supersonic speeds. Results indicated that the use of the leading-edge aileron alone was ineffective or caused negative control until a high Mach number was attained. Results for the untapered configurations, tapered configurations, and drag measurements are provided.
