Description

"A low-drag airfoil specimen was loaded in compression, and surveys of the fairness of the surface were made at different stresses as well as at zero load after successively higher stresses had been applied and removed. The tests reported and the discussion of the significance of the results obtained suggest a procedure for determining the probable outcome of a particular type of construction for a low-drag wing" (p. 1).

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).
