Description

Report presenting an investigation in the 7- by 10-foot tunnel to determine the transonic aerodynamic characteristics of a wing with a spanwise variation in thickness ratio. The wings investigated had 45 degrees of sweepback, aspect ratio 8, taper ratio 0.45, and airfoil sections tapered from an NACA 63A010 section at the root chord to an NACA 63A006 section at the tip chord. Results regarding lift characteristics, drag characteristics, and pitching-moment characteristics are provided.

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).
