  • Content Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation of the change in spanwise load distribution at high Mach numbers, which is of considerable interest because lateral movement of the center of lift affects the trim, stability, and structural factors of safety of an airplane. The data is not sufficient to permit isolation of the effects of changes in wing configuration, but in a majority of cases, the tests reveal a tendency for the center of lift to shift outboard with increasing Mach number.
